Clean baked on food. Put a sheet of Bounce in the pan, fill with water and let sit overnight, then sponge clean. The anti-static agents apparently weaken the bond between the food and the pan while the fabric softening agents soften the baked-on food.

Use Bounce sheets under floor heater/ac registers – they work better than air freshener, especially in the bathroom! Just lift up the vent cover and place one underneath, easy to put in and replace as needed. They don’t require any additional electricity, it just smells nice any time your heat/ac comes on and nobody knows where the fresh smell comes from. They also help to prevent dust and small particles from going down the ducts. Thanks to reader Lindsey!
