In the winter, it is easy to see the allure of a very homey style casserole dish. Casserole dishes are comfort food at its finest, dripping with every food group: carbs, meat and cheese and veggies. Its easy to see how these are winners, until you start to scrub the pots, pans or other dishes. Cheese is sticky, it is stringy. While it tastes ever so yummy, it does a number on my scrubby pad and won’t come off in the dishwasher.
This is what I found, wash the dishes in COLD water. Yes, COLD water. This lets the fats in the cheese harden and makes it easier to scrub off. No more gloopy, stringy mess stuck to your scrubby pad.
