The Bounce Miracle Cure saved my stockpot!

Cynthia, you are a genius!

Last Friday I let my stainless-steel pot boil dry while steaming asparagus, and it was thoroughly covered in carbon. I asked this board for help, and Cynthia suggested that I let the pot soak in very hot tap water and a couple of Bounce fabric softener sheets. This morning, every speck of the burnt-on black soot could be wiped off with the Bounce sheets! Other than a very faint haze on the sides (that the next tomato sauce will no doubt pull off), my pan is good as new, with no elbow grease required! Hounds, take note.

Cynthia, thank you so much. What kind of cookies shall I make for you?
