Haven't tried this, but if it doesn't work try doing the same thing with a tablespoon or two of powdered, automatic dishwasher detergent.

Mmmmm!! This was so yummy, DH didn't take too well to the soap though. This dish is best served hot, preferably after you've cooked bacon.. mmm, bacon bits. ;) All jokes aside, thanks Charishma for posting, it really does work!!
