Drip pans are one of those things that sooner or later will need to be replaced.
They get dirty, and even regular scrubbing just doesn't cut it.
Until...last night, as the children went to bed, and as I was cleaning up the kitchen, I thought that there needed to be a solution for cleaning this mess.
Wool steel pads.
I had bought those ($1 for 10) to use in my vinegar stain experiment...but I didn't wanted to use those on our pans.
But really, even if the drip pan got scratched...I would have had to replaced those anyway.
No loss involved.
I started to scrub the side...see what it's happening?
yep, the gunk is being removed
(that would not come off with dish soap and regular scrubbing action).
I kept scrubbing with the steel wool pad,
until the drip pan looked like this!
Like new (almost), but definitely better than it was before.
not bad for .10c
