Question Olive oil film-help pls

do any of you have any tips for getting a build up of olive oil film off my cookie sheets, pancake griddle etc? I normally use dr bronners diluted but i even tried dawn and it didn't work. i can't use anything abrasive on these surfaces. also since this is similar..i dumped the lanolin water down the bathroom sink by accident (totally meant to dump it outside in my head but my arms didn't follow my brain) anyway last time i did that the sinks clogged up bad, what can i put down the drain to break it up?? i already did hot water but that doesn't cut it i know. TIA!!

For the cookie sheets I always use our standard liquid dish soap. But no water. The water stops the soap coming into contact with the fat. I rub hard and you get a white emulsified soap and fat film, then you can add water to clean/rinse as normal.

No hints for lanolin down the kitchen sink though! sorry!

Ok, this is a long shot that i've never tried, but you never know! If the sheet doesn't have a lip you'll be stuck, but how about pouring coke into the griddle pan and leaving over night?
As I said I've never tried it, but if it can clean pennies/ dissolve teeth etc it might just work?!

The dawn (I think) power dissolver worked a lot of magic for us. It's a thick soap that you put on while the item is dry and let it sit for 5-15 mins.

baking soda/water paste and let it sit several minutes and use a soft bristle brush to scrub if off?

I haven't tried it but you could use spray on oven cleaner and let it sit for a few minutes. Just be careful you don't get it on your skin.

I used comet on my airbake cookie sheets. It scratched them but I use parchment on them anyway.

Have you tried dawn on the lanolin clog? It works to unclog the toilet (a healthy squirt of Dawn (only) followed by a bucket of hot water poured into the toilet from waist height. Wait 20 minutes and then flush. It supposed dissolves grease in the lines). You can also try baking soda flushed down the drain followed by white vinegar.
