Cleaning cookie sheets

I have some heavy guage half sheet pans I use for baking cookies and things.

The other day, I used the pans to make some chicken wings that require you to roast them at 500 degrees.

I lined the pans with aluminum foil but the foil didn't extend to the edges.

And of course the wings really spattered oil and the edges and parts of the bottom of the pans became oily and dark.

I like the pans to stay light colored so they don't get too hot for baking. So I scrubbed and scrubbed with a textured cloth to get all the baked oil off. But much of it didn't come off and the edges still feel really tacky.

So, would it make sense to use oven cleaner on the pans. (Washing it off really well of course.) I happen to have a can of it around.

Any other ideas?
