Use Dish Soap on Outside Of Campfire Pans

When camping and cooking over the campfire, rub liquid dish soap on the outside of the pans. During cleanup the soot from the fire will wipe right off and not ruin your pans.

No. Some of the fumes can be breathed and may get in the food. Wash the pan after cooking and if it doesn't all come off use Eazy Off after you get home.

I have used this tip with great success. I just rubbed it with Dawn or another basic dish soap. The soot collected on top of the soap and it was easier to wash off at the end. Campfire cooking is always a messy proposition but it sure is fun.

Have you ever used your cooking pots and pans over an open fire, knowing they were going to get blackened with soot?
My tip is: On dry exterior, take liquid dish soap and coat the bottom and sides. When it comes time to wash them, the soot washes right off.
