    Would cleaning stubborn stuff like scrambled egg remnants from titanium evernew cookware with wire wool type of pan scrubbers do much/if any damage over time to the metal?

    I bought a Evernew 1.3 from the US and it had a bit of a stain/scorch on it - wire wool worked fine; long term/frequent use?

    I'd do a long soak first, perhaps with soda crystals. Obviously if its not nonstick you might be OK, but it looks nice stuff, so I'd go easy.

    Scrambled egg in a titanium pan, you're brave.

    I've never used titanium pans. It is a very hard metal and should resist scratching, but try a less important area first, like the upper part of the pan on the outside

    However, titanium will resist most chemicals. Boil up some sodium hydroxide/caustic soda or spray it with oven cleaner and leave it to soak. Then scrub it off with a nylon scourer.

    You can also do this with stainless steel, but not aluminium

    I've been scouring out my (soft alloy) Trangia pots with stream-gravel on and off for over a quarter of a century and they're still okay. if your super-duper new Ti ones fall to pieces after a stout scrub then you're better off without them anyway...

    I thought vinegar is the thing to use to clean up food stuff in Titanium. Been a while since I last did it (these days I only boil water in 'em) but I seem to remember it worked like a charm. I think you can either just soak it in, or boil a bit of water with a good dollop of vinegar in it. Leave standing for a couple of hours and the food scraps will come off without the need for any scrubbing.

    I souldn't even need to use wire wool afterall. Normal pan scourerer(plastic kind) seemed to work ok and less harsh.

    A nylon type pan scourer works just fine.

    i would take the opportunity to practice how to cook without burning it on in the first place.

    ...I'm sure that had never crossed his mind....

    I tried the vinegar, lemon juice, soda crystals, washing powder etc, all the online suggestions, they work to a certain extent on the less stubborn burns especially when left overnight. Usually, a nylon scourer or brillo pad gets the last bit, it wouldnt concern me using a brillo on any remaining stain.

    With vinegar and baking soda works best if you use them together.

    Sprinkle baking soda over the area then add some vinegar and let it stand for half an hour or more.

    Then wipe or scrape.

    To scramble egg, put eggs in a Ziploc, squid about a bit and cook in boiling water. Eat eggs out of BAG and make tea with the water.

    No cleaning.
