My parents are in town visiting so last night my brother's family and my parents came for dinner. I was finishing up baking some cookies so my cookie sheets were out. My brother (who is kind of a nutty about somethings) was teasing me about my cookie sheets being so dark. They were originally silver and are now blackened. I wash things, scrub them and have tried baking, soda, special cleaners, brillo pads, pinterest tricks and all that. ( I plan to just replace them but haven't gotten to it yet.) I also have some pots and pans that have the black/brown spots that won't come off. My mom commented on those. Again, I DO scrub things-I just can't get everything off (it's not food). So I am feeling all kinds of self-conscious that I am just a horrible housekeeper and everything I own is disgusting. Part of this is just my own issue of being over-sensitive. My mom is always sharing little "cleaning tips" in a way that drives me nuts and make me feel crappy.
Is all your cookware pristine? Am i missing something/have nasty stuff or they just nutty?
