Hello, Listening Ear

I hate getting called in to work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I thought I would get my room and the kitchen cleaned today, but instead I'm sitting here because of a no call, no show. At least I got most of the dish handwashing done, and the dishwasher unloaded/reloaded with other stuff.

Let's have a not quite so hypothetical situation. Let's say you have a roomate who used the George Foreman the other day (like four days ago) and it is still not clean. I've never used one before and have no idea how to clean it, especially now that it is all crusty. I can't stand how much it reeks! Any suggestions?

Cynthia George Coell is here.
George's are easiest to clean immediately after use. Sit it near the sink and use an old washcloth with sudsy water and drizzle it on the grill. It will steam and generally hurt you, but with some practice -- it's an effortless, painless, immaculate, and hygienic way to clean it. The boiling water will take off the grimy bits, sterilize, and cool it down enough to gently wipe and rinse.

That being said, a George that's sat our for a few hours (no less days!) is a bitch to clean. I recommend turning it on, so it heats and trying the above method after it's hot. Avoid using metal objects to scrape or scrub the surface because you'll damage the non-stick coating.

Heat + soft cloth + washwater - second degree burns that smell oddly like bacon = Clean George

Put it on your roommates bed, then throw a big temper tantrum and threaten to bludgeon him with the plastic spatula that comes with the grill.
