Okay, we've all been there. You're in the kitchen, cooking up a storm, and things get a little out of hand. Before you know it, your pan is burnt beyond recognition. You're thinking to yourself, "How on earth am I going to clean this so my wife will never know?"
Don't worry, we're show you how. Trust us, with our tips, she won't notice what happened. Here's a step-by-step how:
1. Remove the food from the pan. The best way to do this is to use a spatula to scrape off as much of the food as possible. If there are any stubborn bits left behind, don't worry, we'll get to them later.
2. Let the pan soak with hot water & soap for 30 minutes. Once you've removed the food from the pan, fill your pan with hot water and mix with dish soap (or any washing detergent). Simmer the mixed liquid for about 5-8 minutes at low heat. Once the liquid is boiling, turn off the heat, and let the pan soak with closed lid for 30 minutes.
3. Rinse & Clean. After 30 minutes have passed, rinse the pan off with hot water.
4. Take a scrub brush and start scrubbing the pan. Continue this step if there are any stubborn bits of food left behind, use a little bit of elbow grease or baking soda to scrub the pan, and they should come right off.
4. Rinse the pan off with hot water. Rinse and dry it with a clean towel. Place the pan back on the stove and voila! You're done!
5. Done! Now your wife will never know that you burnt the pan. Just make sure you don't tell her about this little secret and all will be well in your world.
