10 Tips for Getting Rid of Burnt Food on Pans
1. Pour Coca-Cola in the pan and put it on the stove. Bring it to a boil and take it off. The acidity in the coke will help to remove whatever’s on the pan.
2. Run hot water in it and add some dish soap. Put the pan on the stove and bring it to a boil. Take it off the stove
and let it sit until the water is cool. Wash as usual and it should come right off.
3. Sprinkle baking soda on it and scrub!
4. Run water into it and place a dryer sheet in the water. Allow it to sit overnight. In the morning it will be ready to wash.
5. Let the pan soak in hot soapy water. Be sure to use a grease cutting dish soap such as Dawn.
6. SOS Pads are perfect for this task.
7. Add water to the pan and pour in some liquid fabric softener. You only need a little bit, maybe a teaspoon and let it sit for a couple hours. It should come up easily when you wash it.
8. Especially for glass cookware, drop in several Alka-Seltzer tablets and let it soak for an hour or so.
9. Crumple up aluminum foil and use it as a scouring pad.
10. Put the pot in the freezer for a couple of hours. The gunk cleans up much easier when it’s frozen.
