Clean burned on food off a pot

  1. You will need to cover the bottom of the pan with a layer of baking soda, add warm water to create a pase and let sit for a few hours or even over night if it’s really bad.
  2. Wipe out the pot with a damp sponge. The food should just wipe right out unless it is really bad (don’t worry I burn food  all the time!)
