I have a pot that I forgot was cooking on the stove. I guess you know what happened. All the food burnt and the pot looks awful. How do I clean it and what do I use?

Soak the burnt pot with water and Clorox for a few hours. Scrub the pot and rinse off with dish wash liquid. Hope this will help you. (05/17/2010)
I just read that putting a dryer sheet in the pan with hot water dissolves the mess. I have never tried it, but it was recommended in another ThriftyFun question about what are alternate uses for dryer sheets. So it may be worth a try. (05/17/2010)
I know the feeling. It's not nice when your pot burns. Try this: Add 2 teaspoons of bicarbonate soda and fill pan with water. Leave for a couple of days and it should remove it. Make sure the water is cold when filling. (05/18/2010)
I have had this happen a couple of times to my good Lagostina pots. :( I tried the fabric softener, and it worked after leaving the pot for a day or 2. But the best I have found is a Dishwasher tablet - I use Cascade. Drop one in, fill with hot water, cover pot and let it sit for several hours. Worked like a charm on a pot I thought I would have to throw out! (05/19/2010)
