So the pan stayed in the oven a bit too long, and then on the stove over night. Now, it has soaked for a day – and the last bit of gunk is still on. Did you hear it? The call from the kitchen? “Mom, I’m leaving this one to soak, I can’t get the food off”. Well friends, that little dish can soak forever, that gunk is not coming off without a little abrasive.
But how do we use Abrasives without chemicals and on a frugal budget?
Enter my friend – Baking Soda! I keep a jar of it in the pantry for baking treats for the family. I also keep a box by the laundry and under the sink. My neighbor keeps a supply in a Parmesan Shaker on the window ledge of her sink.
Just a few minutes of rubbing with the Baking Soda on a rough rag, and we’re ready for brownies again. Extra tip – if you have it in the budget – Line the pan with Tin Foil before putting your meal in – clean up is a cinch!

Great tip. I often forget that Baking Soda can be used for other things and not just baking.
Great tip! We’ll be trying it.
Love the tip, thanks! I recently started lining my crockpot with tin foil, what an extra bonus when you dont have to scrub a crock pot! Thank you for stopping by my blog, I appreciate it! I LOVED your marriage story, I am sure you still get lots of laughs over that one! I am planning to follow your blog!
Why oh Why have I not thought of Tinfoil in the crock pot??????
