Don’t spend more minutes than you have to with this gunk and grease remover!
- Dryer sheets
- Baking soda (optional)
- Fill Pots. Fill the offending pots and pans with hot water. In each filled pan, place an unused dryer sheet, taking care not to burn your hands.
- Wait for the Solution to Take Effect. Let the pots and pans sit overnight in a safe place where no one can knock them over.
- Scrape. In the morning, remove the dryer sheets and scrape off any remaining gunk with a hard, flat-edged spatula.
- Be Ready With a Back-Up. While the dryer sheet is a powerful solution, some exceptionally stubborn gunk needs an extra layer of help. If need be, dump out the water and coat the gunk with baking soda. Let it sit for a couple of hours and try again with the spatula.
