  1. 1

    Turn on a sink faucet and adjust the temperature of the water so it is hot. Place the dish with melted cheese that is stuck in the sink and allow the hot water to run over it.

  2. 2

    Scrape as much of the stuck melted cheese as possible off of the dish with a plastic scraper designed for cleaning dishes and pans.

  3. 3

    Fill the sink with hot water to a level that will cover the dish with the remaining melted cheese that is stuck. Place a dryer sheet in the water and allow the dish to soak over night.

  4. 4

    Remove the dryer sheet and discard. Drain the water from the sink and rinse or wipe the loosened cheese from the dish.

  5. 5

    Wash the dish thoroughly with liquid dish detergent to completely remove the remaining film from the dryer sheet.
