How To Get Marshmallow Off A Pan

Have you been melting some marshmallow in a pan? Noticed a lot has now stuck and you are not sure how to safely, effectively and easily remove it – protecting your pans in the process? Well, you’ve come to the right place. Here is all you are going to need to do

How To Get Marshmallow Off A Pan

You can get marshmallow off a pan with simple soaking, or by using a dish soap/spray for stubborn areas.

Let us now look at the steps in greater detail.

Removing Marshmallow Off A Pan

  1. Remove excess marshmallow from the pan

    Try to remove as much of the marshmallow as you can from the pan. You should only use a wooden spoon or plastic utensil(s) and be sure not to damage or scratch the pan. Try to gently scrape off excess and place this in the bin.

  2. Add some soap

    To the pan, along with a little bit of water from the tap.

  3. Place on the stove

    And warm the liquid-soap solution over a medium heat. The soap should start to bubble. Ensure the soap is over the stain and coats the entire pan. The soapy solution should be 1-2mm thick.

  4. Leave to one side to cool down

    Leave the pan (with the warm soap-solution) in a safe place (on a heatproof mat on the countertop) or sink. Be careful not to burn yourself or your kitchen countertop. Let the solution soak into the marshmallow in the pan for 10-15 minutes

  5. Scrub with a washing brush

    Once the soap-solution has had a chance to cool, use a brush to remove the marshmallow. You should find it comes off considerably easier and in most cases, this is all you will need to do.

  6. For particularly stubborn marshmallow stains, consider using a stronger dish soap

    Sprays like this one from Amazon are particularly effective here. Spray onto stubborn stains and leave on top to dissolve the marshmallow. Wash through with soap and water after 10-15 minutes.

If you don’t have any dishwasher soap to hand, another great cleaning agent to use is baking soda.

This also works in a similar fashion and will be able to effectively break down the stained marshmallow.

Just use it in place of step two up above.

That should do it!

Or, for particularly stubborn stains, consider making a solution of baking soda, vinegar, and hydrogen peroxide.

That will certainly do it.

That being said, in most cases simple dishwasher soap, a little heat, soaking and a little brushing should do the trick!
