I posed this question on The Happy Housewife’s Facebook Page and we received some super helpful advice and suggestions from our readers, so we are sharing it with everyone!
Reader Question: “Help I have a new Pyrex baking dish I burnt BBQ sauce in it…What can I use to clean it? It’s been soaking in continuously hot water with Dawn Power Clean. Any suggestions, thanks!”
Reader Suggestions for How to Clean Burnt on Sauce in a Pyrex Dish
- Throw a dryer sheet in the water let it set for half an hour and wipe it off or use a ball of foil to scrape it off.
- A very wet paste of hot water and baking soda. Let it sit and soak.
- Vinegar, so you can actually eat the foods you cook in it next time. Although, I do this often, and all I need to use is an ocello sponge & 7th generation dish soap. I only bring out vinegar for the really tough jobs. Maybe do 50/50 vinegar & water to cover the dirty area & put back in the oven for a while. The boiling vinegar cleans even better than cold.
- Scotch Brite Stainless Steel scrubbers and a little elbow grease works every time!!!
- I use Oxiclean dishwasher detergent. Shake some in the pot or bowl your cleaning and add some dish soap and fill with hot hot water. Leave it overnight and it’ll wipe off.
- Fill with water and throw a dishwasher tab in overnight.
- Soak it with super hot water and some fabric softener overnight. Then use a plastic scraper.
- Fill with water, pour in a little vinegar, cover with foil, put it in the oven… 350 for, oh 45 minutes…. Careful removing (you can let it cool a bit, pour out liquid and the stains wipe right off… Rinse, voila!)
- And, many products were mentioned like: Barkeeper’s Friend, SOS pads, and Mr. Clean Magic Erasers.
