Removing burned on food from a pan with a dryer sheet

This video shows you how you can use warm water, dish soap, a dryer sheet and a little patience to easily remove burned-on, stuck on food from a pan. I saw another video online which showed that this could be done and decided to try it out myself.

I dont know if this will work for non-stick coated, aluminum pans or pans made with other materials. The pan I used is a Revereware copper-bottomed pan that I've had since 1995
