Will peroxide and baking soda do the trick for getting the rust and stains out of your oven pans?

 

Getting those oven pans looking brand new seems impossible. Then I read an article about someone using peroxide and baking soda to rid of rust and stains without scrubbing. Well, I had to try it out.

 

I took my most stained and rusted pan I could find. I then sprinkled on some baking soda and sprayed some peroxide that made a light layer of putty over the stains. After a few minutes, the mixture started foaming. It seemed like a sign that the stuff was working and breaking down the rust and stains. I decided to wait about 4 hours and on occasion would re-wet with peroxide and add a tad bit more baking soda because the mixture would harden.

 

After 4 hours it was time. I took out my sponge and started scrubbing away. It wasn’t wiping off as described in the article. A tiny bit came off, but I had to scrub hard. I eventually got my brush out and kept trying. Only a tiny little bit of brown came off. I was worn out and gave up.

 

I had another friend of mine try it out. He left it on a few hours longer but still got similar results. We both had minimal results. I will try it again with more baking soda and peroxide, use a pan with less rust, and leave it on for 12 hours.

 

If you try this out or find a solution for getting these pans looking new again, that won’t break the bank or cause a hazmat situation, let me know on any of my digital or social media platforms under Smartshopperdaphne.
