Greasy Pot Rescue: Caked-on dinner mess? Add a hearty dash of baking soda to a still-warm pot and add water. Let it sit while you eat and return to a much easier scrub job. If you forget to take the proactive approach, add the baking soda and a few cups of boiling water to a cooled pan. Allow it to sit while you tackle the other dishes and then wash as usual. (Also good for shining up nasty burner pans.)
