Burned stuff on your pan?
Valiant cooked breakfast for Buttercup and me this morning. He made scrambled eggs with cheddar cheese and English muffins. It was terrific. He's still learning, however, and I was left with egg burned on my pan. My dad taught me this easy peasy way to get burned on food off a pan without breaking your arm scrubbing.
All you do is take the pan in question, fill it with enough water to cover the burned on food, and sprinkle in a little (a tablespoon or so) dishwasher powder. Put the pan on the stove-top and bring to a simmer. Let it simmer for about a minute or so and turn the fire off. Then let the pan cool and hand-wash. The burned on stuff will come off easily, your scrubber will have a longer life, and doing the dishes won't make you crazy. (All because I listened to my dad, go figure!)
