Scorched pans are infamously tough to recover, but with the right knowledge, you can get them looking good again. We’ve got some easy ways to save your scorched pans using household items you already have on hand in your apartment.
Did you know you can use dryer sheets to clean scorched pans? This method is easy, and it works really well. Simply fill your scorched pan with warm water, then place a dryer sheet on the bottom of the pan. Be sure to push the sheet down so it becomes fully submerged in the water. Let it sit for 3-4 hours. Then use the dryer sheet to clean off debris.
Baking soda does it again! This trick is best for stainless steel pots and pans. To scrub away burnt debris, make a “paste” by mixing together some baking soda with warm water. Apply the paste to the scorched pot or pan, then scrub the gunk away.
Soak with Soap
Another way to save your scorched pans is to soak them overnight in warm water. This simple task goes a long way when it comes to loosening burnt food. After the pan has soaked, use warm water and dish soap to scrub it clean.
