How do I clean up pan bottoms? They are non-stick cookware.

If you are talking about the outside of the pan, you should be able to use SOS soap pads, or schouring powder of any kind.
If it is on the outside of the pot or pan, use oven cleaner. If it is on the inside, a "bounce" or other dryer sheet will loosen stuck on stuff. Just put it in the pan, fill with water and leave overnight.
I use Barkeepers Friend for the bottom of my pans, and they still look like new. It's a powdered cleanser like Comet, etc., but it is not abrasive at all. You can buy it at Walmart and most grocery stores. Works really well.
