    I think it may have been here I learned of the dryer sheet for stubborn baked foods on pans or baking dishes like after scalloped potatoes! All I can say is WOW it has made clean up a wonder, I find I don't have to leave it soak overnight, just a short time and it loosens baked on food.

    I too use dryer sheets for cleaning my brushed nickel fixtures. I also use dryer sheets for cleaning adhesives from my iron sole plate. I just take a used dryer sheet or two and run a hot iron back and forth over the dryer sheet, no more of the expensive tube of chemical iron sole plate cleaner for me. Again a tip learned on this board, I'm sure.

    I will be trying it to clean the base of fixtures per your suggestion! PLUS like the tip of using a used tissue box for storage.

    I hope the dryer sheets work for you! Thanks for the reminder about the iron sole plate cleaning. My new iron has a Teflon coated sole plate and is icky. Nothing has cleaned it...thanks for the reminder!

    The used dryer sheets also work at cleaning fiberglass showers.

    I use vinegar on mine but I don't have brushed nickel. I think it should be fine though. I soak paper towel in the vinegar & lay the paper towel & vinegar on the spot I want to clean. Leave it about 1/2 hour & it looks like new again

    I made note of all the suggestions and have tried the vinegar first. That seemed to work very well for me. I appreciate all who took the time to respond. Thank you to everyone.
