Default Re: Extremely Dirty Pans...

The hardest part will be having to use more than one method to deal with more than one issue. Bleaching first will kill the mold and canine artifacts. It can be scrubbed and rinsed thoroughly afterwards, and then even neutralized with aquarium de-chlorinator if desired. But that will perhaps still leave some rust, which requires the vinegar solution treatment or electrolysis. Lye might be effective on the contaminants, but it still won't affect the rust.

If it was a combo of just crud, canine, and mold, but with no rust, it might be as simple as running them through a short self-cleaning oven cycle. Assuming you (and other housemates) were willing to use it for the purpose. But, again, no help with rust there.
