Best Ways To Clean Your Favorite Pan. You don’t have to throw it away. Try these tips:
Try greased lightning on the pan, spray it on heavily, sponge it around the entire inside and let sit 5 or 10 minutes then scrub off. You may have to repeat.
Fabric softener sheet fill with hot soap water and lay sheet inside about 15/20 minutes wipe out.
Once a year use oven cleaner on all pots and pans. It gets all of that Gunk off works every time. Just get any ole regular oven cleaner. Spray it on, place in warm oven for awhile. Then wash as normal. Comes right off.
A try Big Orange degreaser spray. This stuff will take out asphalt! You can order it off the internet.
Ajax or Comet with little hot water and Brillo pad will clean your pan.
Try putting down a layer of baking soda then plain old white vinegar over it and let it sit. It should foam up and wash right off. May take a few times to get it all off.
Put vinegar in the pan set on stove top bring to a boil let set overnight.
Put in a self cleaning oven, on the clean setting. It will come out looking brand new.
Put your pan in a plastic bag and pour ammonia into the bag and tie up and let set overnight. Or take a large trash bag put the pan in it cover it with ammonia straight ammonia seal the bag and leave it outside for a few hours or a day. Just be careful with the fumes put it outside. It worked like a charm for me with the stove racks that have baked on grease on them! It works!!
Pour a bottle of cola in your pan, leave it over night, in the morning it will all go away when you wash.
Boil or heat up water with 1 cup vinegar until simmer, add 1/2 cup baking soda (watch it does not over boil) and soak the pan in over night. Wash in warm water and if some specks are left, and scrub.
Final advice: Your pan is not dirty.! It is a well seasoned pan. I’d just wash it in the dishwasher and let it be.
