Remove as much of the burnt food as you can with the rubber spatula and the nylon scrubber.
Mix together 3 tbsp of chlorine bleach, 1 tbsp of dish soap and 1 cup of water in a bowl. Stir well.
Pour the bleach mixture into the non-stick pan and allow it to soak for one hour.
Discard the mixture and use the nylon scrubber to remove remnants of the burnt food from the non-stick pan.
Wash the non-stick pan a final time with the dish soap. Rinse the pan and dry it thoroughly with a towel.
