Getting burned on or stuck on food from pans: Sprinkle with powdered dishwasher detergent, add hot water, let soak overnight. In morning, pans come clean very quickly.
My mother also taught me a quicker way to removed burned food in the pan. She simply added water to the pan and let it simmer for a few minutes. It then came out very nicely. This works if you're in a hurry. (01/10/2005)
Don't do this on aluminum pots. The dishwasher detergent will eat holes thru aluminum. OK to use on stainless steel. Not sure about iron pots or Non-stick pots like Teflon. (12/27/2008)
