    Getting Glass Bakeware Clean?

    OK, so I've been cooking in Pyrex glass bakeware. The problem is the cleanup. It gets this brown gunk all over that won't come off no matter how much I scrub. I saw a video on youtube where a lady put ammonia in a trash bag and left the glass bakeware sealed up inside overnight. It worked as...

    Update: "Finally Solved Baked Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast Connundrum"

    UPDATE: Gunk Vs Ammonia, We Have A Winner! So I put some ammonia in the gunked-up glass baking dish, wrapped it in a black trash bag and stuck it out on the back porch for 40 hours. When I unwrapped it, things were immediately promising, as there was gunk floating in the ammonia and I could...

    Update: "Finally Solved Baked Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast Connundrum"

    OK, update: The Chicken: I cut it down from 1 to 3/4 teaspoons of Montreal steak seasoning per side. Delicious, but still a little too salty/peppery. After this batch is consumed, I'll go down to 1/2 teaspoon MSS (Montreal Steak Seasoning). The Grinder: So, I really don't enjoy rubbing the...

    Update: "Finally Solved Baked Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast Connundrum"

    I've been googling this and saw several youtube videos where they took really crusty glass bakeware, put ammonia in them, sealed them in plastic bags, let them sit overnight and the crud came right off. I'm trying it. Of course, after I decided to leave it outside so Lily wouldn't have to...

    I suspect the cooking spray as well. Is there a difference between brands? I've been using the Wal Mart house brand in the butter flavor.

    Update: "Finally Solved Baked Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast Connundrum"

    Boy, I'll tell you, I've been scrubbin' and scrapin' on this thing all day, and It's nowhere near clean yet. This just ain't worth it. I try to hard be green, but when I can get aluminum foil roasting pans for a buck apiece, it's hard to justify all this grief and drudgery.

    Finally Solved Baked Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast Connundrum

    McCormick's website recommended it for the Montreal chicken seasoning, so I figured it would be the same for the Montreal steak seasoning. I'll just keep cutting the amount down until I find the sweet spot. A couple of months ago I found an article where they interviewed one of Col. Sanders...
