    I had scorched/burnt milk in the bottom of my pan (went outside to feed cats and forgot the pan). I tried several different things and the burnt stuff would not come out. I soaked two bounce sheets in it and the pan is almost clean now! And what is left is coming out with a nylon scrubbie. Thanks for posting this - I was sure I would have to throw the pan away.

    Deer rpellant _ I have many hosta. deer were eating only two of them. Took a dryer sheet - put a long nail through it and 'planted it" near the hosta. no more deer !
    this worked for me. not sure if it works all the time

    Okay well here is a quilting tip to use bounce with. You rub it all around the plate area of your sewing machine and when you machine quilt - the quilt slides real easy. ))

    Baking soda will do the same trick, and without the VOCs.

    Liquid softener will work too, my mother use to use that. Also the new Dawn pot soaker liquid works fast! I love that stuff. Baking soda does work on some pans but doesn't work as great as these products.
    Got fabric?

    Don't use oven cleaner of any kind if you have a pet bird. My Husband puts water in the pan with cooked on food, heats it on stovetop, turns it off and lets it soak. Off it comes, just plain H2O.

    I tried oven cleaner on some of my aluminum pans and it turned them all black. Dryer sheets works for me and I also use them to remove gunk from my iron.

    I use a tablespoon of cream of tarter in a burnt pan. Fill with water and boil a few minutes then soak. Comes clean--slick as a whistle.

    Used dryer sheets are good to rub gum & ink off the inside of the dryer & washer. Ask me how I know. lol

    Vinegar and baking soda is what I used when I was cooking beets and forgot about it. Left the vinegar and baking soda with little water in all night and boy the pan was so shiny when I cleaned it up.
