1. Scrub with aluminum foil
A short clip by Hometalk shows just how easy it is to remove burnt food with aluminum foil. The process is simple. Apply a bit of soap and water. Next, scrub the dish with the foil. The abrasive texture will remove the food better than a regular sponge.
2. Magic Eraser
Good Housekeeping indicates that using a Magic Eraser is a pretty good option for removing grime from a dish. However, the article notes that it requires quite a bit of effort and multiple pads. One suggestion is to allow the pan to soak for a while before using this method.
3. Soak overnight with a dryer sheet
If you want a simple solution without all the work, you will love this idea offered by eHow. Simply fill the dish with hot water and put in a dryer sheet. The next morning, the burnt food will wipe away.
4. Baking soda and dish soap
One of the most effective methods for removing grime is to use baking soda and dish soap. Good Housekeeping says to coat the bottom of the pan with dish soap and baking soda. Allow it to sit for 15 minutes. If some spots are worse, apply more baking soda. With a little elbow grease, the grime will wipe away.
