The Fastest Way to Clean Glass Dishes

3 Materials

Easy

Cooking in glass/pyrex dishes are great, except when it comes to cleaning them. I always find that my chicken is nicely cooked, but the sauce is burnt to the pan. With a little tinfoil, you can scrub off that stuck-on grime really quickly.
Here’s my dish after some chicken parm. Ugh!

Step 1: Add a Little Soap

I added a few squirts of dish soap to my dirty pan and made sure it spread all over.
Step 2: Run Water over the Whole Pan

Then, I turned on the faucet and let the bottom of the pan fill up , to spread the soap around.
Step 3: Crumple up a Piece of Aluminum Foil

I crumpled up my aluminum foil into a very loose ball. Don’t make it tight, because you want all the texture to do the scrubbing for you.
Step 4: Scrub

I scrubbed the corners and burnt areas with my foil ball, and the grime easily lifted away! I was a little worried about scratching the pan, but no harm was done (well, except for to the baked-on gook!).
Step 5: Rinse

I ran the dish under the faucet just to wash away any remaining grime, and then let it dry!
