I, umm, slacked on the dishes. Not in their entirety, just a few. Unfortunately those that were neglected, I realize in hindsight, should have been dealt with sooner.
It's a combination of not being well enough greased, baking on, and then sitting out too long. :-/ Just the sponge doesn't really touch it. I've soaked it, which hasn't helped a lick. And scrapped at it with a spoon, which is helpful but tedious and the spoon doesn't do much of a good job in the corners. Any other brilliant ideas? I've already tossed around the idea of just tossing it and getting a new one next time they're on sale but that seems foolish. My mom is on her way to visit for a few days and I'd rather her not think I save all the big messes for her. ;-)
