To get burned on food off of cookware; bring a pot of water to a boil. Drop in a used dryer softener sheet, and let soak overnight. Everything slides right off the next day!

A "greener" solution is to fill the pot with water, add 1/4 cup of baking soda and turn the burner on warm. The burnt on food will rinse right off. You need to watch out for the chemicals in dryer sheets. Make sure if you use this technique that you wash and rinse the pot really well. Baking Soda is much safer! (12/01/2009)
