A proven, no scrub, but risky method to get out the real tough gunk is to
leave the dirty pot out overnight and let natures little helpers clean it
up.  A raccooon's tongue will beat anything man can come up with.  Used this
method many times until one morning the pot was nowhere to be found (that
must have been one hungry 'coon).
