When I have a saucepan that needs soaking, after scooping out the contents I fill with water, heat til hot, take off heat, squirt in a little dish detergent, and set in sink. Using a long handled dish brush, I wash each dish, rinse, and drain.
Also, when the dish detergent is almost gone, I fill it with water and use it for washing hands at the sink. It doesn't have that strong perfumey smell that some soaps have, and you use up every last little bit of detergent!
