green kitchen scrubbie, some baking soda and lot of elbow grease.
I have actually soaked them in a strong bleach solution and gained some success with removal
lend it to your coworker. lol.....mine came back clean because she couldn't stand it.
I have used oven cleaner...and a scrubbie..looked brand new
I have heard oven cleaner, too, but never tried it. I also have heard glass pyrex dishes can explode at high temps, so I don't think I would try putting it in the oven. @Melissa, did you let it sit for awhile before scrubbing?
Krud Kutter is amazing stuff. It got the baked on mess off my oven window with very little effort. Try that and either a Brillo pad or Scothch Brite. I have used Brillo lightly on my pyrex dishes - it didn't scratch the glass but took the mess right off.
Ms.Becky, I didnt put it in the oven. But yes I did let it sit. Spray, let set a little (10 minutes to half an hour) scrub, rinse.
I have a friend that swears by Krud Kutter. I've not used it, but I saw before and after pictures of a filthy bathroom in the store she's renting and wow it was like night and day.
I always line mine with foil, but there have been times when the foil tears and I get a bit of baked on mess that I soak in very hot water with a tad of powered dishwasher soap. I've used that in pans when I've been distracted and burnt something too.
I just cleaned one spotless last night in less than 5 min. It was a glass pyrex dish, I had baked some chicken in it earlier. I poured a small amount of alcohol and hydrogen perxiode in the dish. I used a brillo pad without much effort at all and the dish was spotless! In the past, I've always let it soak over night. I'm glad I tried this because it was amazing!
@Kimberly Hicks you should repeat that cleaning with just the brillo pad...it is doing 99% of the work.
It would have taken a box of brillo pads for this job. (Not sure I should have even responded to the above post).
put the dish in a kitchen trash bag and poor 1/2 cup ammonia and tie the bag shut leave over nite ( I put mine out in the garage). remove from bag and wash.
Time for my favorite cleaning tool! A small straight razor blade scraper, the kind in a holder that allows you expose or retract the razor, usually used to scrape the paint off of windows. Not the $2 one in a cheap metal case, but the $4-5 one that has a soft rubber covering (nicer on hands). You can scrape the oldest brown stains off of a glass baking dish with ease. Or a metal baking sheet or pan. When I first tried it on an old aluminum roasting pan, I was ready to throw it. The gunk came off in nice sheets of brown film - a little practice with flipping the razor to avoid burrs/scratching. Scratched the aluminum a few times on that first one until I learned to flip it over to keep the razor even and not burred. Aluminum is a soft material. Glass is easier. You can use it on the bottoms of your pots, glass (or painted) stove tops, laminate counter tops, etc. No more chemicals or scrubbing and almost instant gratification!
For any baked on food from cooking ! I always use clothes dryer sheet , fill with water toss in the sheet , it comes off always . If I see some where water didn't touch I use the sheet to wipe it off ! It's amazing !
Dawn makes a spray on solution that works great! Just spray it on let it sit for a while and then use a scrub pad.
I inherited some pans (glass and corning white) from my mother that had brown around the edges which I didn't really think bothered me but after using it I put it in the dishwwasher on POTS and PAN setting and it came out AMAZING. It looked better than mine which were only a few years old. Now I routinely clean them in the dishwasher and they all look new. I used to scrub them with pads and scouring powder - but no more.
