Hi, I'm Caitlin from My Gal Friday, and today we are going to clean a dirty grill pan. Take your scrubby sponge, sink full of soapy water, baking soda, a damp rag, paper towels or dish rag to dry. This is what catches all of the drippings from, when you cook in the oven. So, you can often have a lot of burnt fatty residue and what you want to do to get that clean is you want to just cover it with baking soda. Baking soda is an excellent cleaner and you just want to get it nice and spread it all over the surface. You can repeat this step both for the pan and the top and what you want to do is you're going to take a wet rag and let it sit over the surface, the dirty surface of the grill pan. You just want to let it sit for ten or fifteen minutes at least, the longer the better; it just makes your job easier. And, once you've let that sit and all of the burnt residue has really gotten moist, you just want to scrub it down with your cloth and try to remove as much of the baking soda as possible and just leave a little bit. I'm just going to put this right here 'cause we're about to wash that. And then, you take a scrubby sponge and just really scrub down the inside of your grill pan. It should come off very easily once it's soaked and the baking soda is a nice little scrubby agent. So, once you've scrubbed this down, you can take a dry paper towel and just wipe down the inside of the surface. The nice thing about using baking soda is that it is nontoxic. So, you don't have to worry about leaving any on the surface. In a grill pan it doesn't really matter so much anyway 'cause you're not eating off of this. But, you just want to wipe it down and get it nice and clean. And you can take it back over to your sink and rinse it. But, this is basically done. Once you've rinsed it off, you just dry it again or leave it in your dish rack. And that's it. I'm Caitlin from My Gal Friday, and I've just shown you how to clean a dirty grill pan.
