    Try putting on a paste made of baking soda and water - let it sit a half hour and wipe off.

    Bar Keepers Friend powder and a scrunge pad work well, but may leave some scratches.

    If it is copper, ketchup and salt. If aluminum, Barkeepers Friend, damp, let sit about 15 minutes then scrub with a green heavy duty scrubbie.

  • Soak it in a basin of water and a dryer sheet.

    I soak them in Dawn dish detergent and hot water. Polish it up with a paste cleaner like Soft scrub or make a baking soda paste and scrub with a magic eraser or microfiber cloth. Good luck and stay safe!

    What sort of pan is it- what is it made out of, and how old is it?

    Make a thick paste of baking soda and water, apply it to the pan and let it set. I usually let it set overnight and then using the rough side of a dollar store sponge, scrub it off. Repeat if needed.

  • Cerama Bryte or Bar Keeper's Friend. Works great!

    Hey Pat: What I use is a paste of white vinegar and cream of tartar (the dry stuff). Make a paste and put it on the gunk. Let it sit for about 15 or 20 seconds and then scrape off with a plastic putty knife or one of those plastic scrubbies. You may have to do it a couple of times if the gunk is thick, but usually not. There is no smell and it is environmentally safe. Good luck.

    I have heard that baking powder and vinegar soak does a great job.

    Barkeeper's friend

    SOS pad

    Baking soda and hydrogen peroxide with steel wool

    marble paste

    These are all options to achieve a clean pan.
