Kitchenware > Cookware

Alka-Seltzer. To clean baked-on food from pots, pans, or casserole dishes, fill the cookware with water, drop in six Alka-Seltzer tablets, let soak for one hour, and then scrub as usual.

Arm & Hammer Baking Soda. To clean baked-on food from pots and pans, fill the pot or pan with enough water to cover the food baked inside, add one tablespoon Arm & Hammer Baking Soda, place on the stove, and bring to a boil for five minutes. Let cool and then scrub with a sponge, rinse, and dry.

Bounce. To remove baked-on food and grime from a pot, pan, or casserole dish, go to your laundry and grab that box of Bounce dryer sheets. You’ll notice that Procter and Gamble has conveniently designed a sheet of Bounce to fit perfectly in a Corning ware or Pyrex casserole dish. Fill the pot, pan, or casserole dish with water, float a sheet of Bounce in it overnight, and in the morning, use the wet sheet of Bounce to wipe out the cookware. The antistatic elements in Bounce loosen the baked-on food. And there will be no static cling either.

Cascade. To clean baked-on food from a pot or pan, pour two tablespoons Cascade dishwasher detergent in the cookware, fill with hot water, wait thirty minutes, and rinse clean. The phosphates in Cascade loosen all the baked-on food.

Coca-Cola. If you burn a pot or pan on the stove and want to clean out a brown burn stain, boil some Coca-Cola in the pot or pan. The burn stain will come off.

Downy Fabric Softener. To clean baked-on food from pots, pans, or casserole dishes, fill the cookware with water, add a cupful of Downy Fabric Softener, mix well, and let sit over night. In the morning, scrub with a sponge and rinse clean.

Efferdent. If you boil all the water out of a pot and want to clean out the brown burn stain, fill the pot with water and drop in two or three Efferdent denture cleansing tablets. Let the pot sit overnight. In the morning, use a sponge to wipe away that otherwise difficult burn stain. (You can also toss your dentures in the pot at the same time and kill two birds with one stone.)

Heinz White Vinegar. To clean baked-on food from pots, pans, or casserole dishes, fill the cookware with equal parts Heinz White Vinegar and water; let stand for thirty minutes; scrub with a sponge in hot, soapy water; and rinse clean.

Jet-Dry. Fill baking dishes, pots, or pans encrusted with baked- on food with water, add one tablespoon Jet-Dry, and let sit overnight. In the morning rinse clean. The surfactants in Jet- Dry loosen the baked-on food.

L’eggs Sheer Energy Panty Hose. To make an excellent pot scrubber, ball up a clean, used pair of L’eggs Sheer Energy Panty Hose and insert it into a webbed onion bag.

Maxwell House Coffee. Scrub baked-on food from pots and pans with used Maxwell House Coffee grounds, which are a non-toxic, readily available, mild abrasive.

McCormick Cream of Tartar. Sprinkle McCormick Cream of Tartar on stubborn baked-on food in pots and pans and scrub with a sponge. The potassium bitartrate loosens the food particles.

Morton Salt. To successfully scrub calcium deposits from glass ware or baked-on food from pots and pans, use Morton Salt as if it was Comet cleanser. Salt is a highly effective abrasive.

Parsons’ Ammonia and Glad Trash Bags. To remove black burn marks from pots, pans, and casserole dishes, place the cookware in a Glad Trash Bag, pour in two cups Parsons’ Ammonia, tie the bag securely shut, and let stand outside over night. Open the bag outdoors, keeping your face away from the fumes. Rinse the ammonia off the dishes with a garden hose and then bring them back inside to wash thoroughly.

Reynolds Wrap. Crumple a sheet Reynolds Wrap aluminum foil into a ball and use it as a pot scrubber to clean baked-on food from a pot or pan. The foil is soft and works like a steel wool pad, without scratching the cookware.

20 Mule Team Borax. To clean baked-on food from pots, pans, or casserole dishes, sprinkle 20 Mule Team Borax on the cookware, rub with a damp sponge, and rinse thoroughly.
