I remember hearing about covering a pan with alum. foil (or use a foil pie
plate) and add water and fabric softener. Never tried it myself.

I also heard another tip about fabric softener on a home show. It's great
for removing wallpaper. "Score" the wallpaper and them wet the paper down
with fabric softener and sponge. Leave for 15 mins. and it should peel off.
I'll have to try that one too. Toodles....Bunki
