How to Save Your Roommate's Pan You Accidentally Burned

It's Thursday Night and after a long claustrophobic day at work (it was the weather I swear), you go home to make yourself some tofu stir-fry. Except you turn away for a split second to long (damn you crackberry and your bbming) and "EPG, what's that burning smell?"

This was me last Thursday. I burnt rice in my roommate's pot and I couldn't for the life of me get the stains off the bottom. I ruined her perfectly food pot.

But thanks to the internet, I discovered this neat little trick.

When you burn a pot, pan, etc. fill it with cold water and dump a TON of salt into the water. Let the salt water sit overnight and the next day, burn marks come right off.

I don't know what chemically happens overnight but this tip saved me a trip to the Red Hook Ikea to replace her pot.

Hope it helps you out some day.
