I do not claim to know or remember much of my organic chemistry I took for my nursing program, (been a nurse 12 years now) much less the high school chemistry I took in the 198os but a few things have “stuck”.
I remember learning more or less why acids like lemon juice and vinegar make effective degreasers. Vinegar (or even ketchup) can take tarnish off copper, and putting something oily like butter can take sticky adhesive bits off (like stickers or a price tag)
What I am wondering is there some kind of simple ingrediant thing like this that will work with scrambled eggs stuck on a pan. We are moving toward using my stainless steel frying pans rather than buying more Teflon, and everything is pretty good (with enough butter or canola oil or water in the pan) but scrambled eggs still require a good scraping/scouring. It made me grumpy all day yesterday cleaning out that stupid pan.
I figure with the collective wisdom of the Dope I will find something quickly.
