Someone asked what she used them for. If you read her post carefully, she said that she burned the cookie sheets. Depending on what they are made of, you could soak them in hot, soapy water for awhile, scrub them, and then put them in the dishwasher.
Wow, I sure don't live in the same world as all these comments show! I do not wash cookie sheets. I have some wonderful old-school cookie sheets. Oh, some 'new' ones, too, but I generally do not wash them after baking cookies [and through the years I have baked literally hundreds of thousands of dozens of cookies!]. I simply wipe them with a paper towel and put back in my oven [my storage compartment for such things]. I bought some newer non-stick-surface cookie sheets that I keep separate and do wash, regular [read Dawn] dish detergent and hot water because a grandson has a serious allergy to peanuts and I don't want to make any cookies for him that have been baked on cookie sheets that just might have had peanut butter cookies or such baked on them. Just what do y'all do to make a mess of cookie sheets? You've gotta be using them for more than cookies!
Brillo doesn't rust! Leave it on the sink, in the sink, in a dish....they don't rust. The pads in the pink box next to the SOS. You can use them for days and they won't rust! I left SOS behind 40 years ago, when my mother was still "cleaning" her oven! Brillo is the best, and it doesn't disintergrate rapidly like SOS does. I don't think you get as many in a box, but who cares. A rusty SOS is an awful thing to pickup!
Make a paste of 1/4 cup baking soda, 1/2 cup salt, and 1/4 cup dish soap (Dawn would be good). Scrub and scrub and it will come off.
