Question: How Do I Remove Baked on Food From My Pots and Pans?
Answer: For baking pans with baked on gunk, the best solution is a mix of baking soda, hot water, and dishwashing liquid. Allow the pots and pans to soak for 15-30 minutes. Scrub out the pots and pans with a plastic scrubber, double checking curves of the dish.

Burned on food in a pot or pan should have water and baking soda added to the pan and brought to a boil. This will loosen the burned on food. Carefully remove the pots and pans from heat and add a little dishwashing liquid. When it has cooled enough, scrub pots and pans more baking soda and a plastic scrubber.
