    My grandmother gave me here 1900 era Wearever aluminum cookware along with this: scrub the burned food as much as possible; rinse and put in about 1/2 cup of water and 1/4 cup sudsy ammonia. Put the lid on and set it outside overnight - it's stinky! The ammonia magic works and you can wash it out fairly easily. Good luck. Oh, yeah still using three of her Wearever pots!

    Coat burned area with baking soda. Pour in some vinegar. Heat to a boil. Let it boil for awhile. turn off. Let dry completely. Scrape out. You may have to do several times if it is a bad burn.

    Bring water to a boil in the burnt pot and add either a fabric softener sheet or a tablespoon of liquid fabric softener. Soak for several hours or overnight and the burnt on bits will easily wash away.

    Soak the burned bottom in vinegar overnight. Rinse that out, and use a wood or plastic spoon or scrubbing sponge to get most of the food out. Yuck! rinse again, then sprinkle baking soda in the pan and scrub with a sponge to get the rest of the burn marks out. Add more baking soda and your rinsed out sponge if you need to. Rinse all the baking soda out, and the sponge. Then wash the whole pot in hot sudsy dishwater, or wash in a dishwater. If something burned is still stuck in the bottom, you may need to repeat the vinegar soak and scrape, baking soda scrub, and dishwater wash. Try not to scratch the aluminum with your scrubbing, and most things eventually come loose with soaking. Best wishes ☺️
