burnt beans

... in a pot smell really bad! uck! the whole damn house smells like a crematorium for beans!

I was desperate to clean my stainless steel pot (desperate houswives???) and my soda and hot water trick was NOT working, so I did a google search for "burnt pot" +beans +"how to clean" and lo and behold(!) I got a bunch of answers -- the weirdest of which was to use Bounce dryer sheets and water (put it in a plastic bag and leave it sealed for a couple of days. Must be SOME strong chemical in those dryer sheets!

I used steel wool and elbow grease.
