Well a good tip for you, Happychops! I learned yesterday that brown sauce smeared on burnt food in pans etc soon makes the pans like new again - have yet to try this, but I shall bear it in mind for future reference 🙂

I have used mayonnaise to clean bitumen from our step ladders. It worked really well,
It’s amazing what you find out on the Internet.
I cleaned my pan using soda crystals and vinegar, but will try brown sauce if it were to happen again.
Perhaps people could post their best tips and we could all try them.

Crikey, Happychops! It makes you wonder what these sauces are doing to our insides 🙂

Good idea about the cleaning tips page - you will have to start one!
