rid of film on pot caused by orange peels, please?

I got an organic remedy to rid of ants---boiling water and cooking with orange peels for 10 minutes, and pouring onto the ant mounds.

After I cooked the peels, my pot has a thick grimmy film created by the oil of the peels. I could not scrub it off at all. I keep my pots and pans always pretty clean and shinny. Now my stainless pot gets so dirty looking.. What can I use to get rid of the grime? Thanks

I wonder if you soaked it in hot water and a few tablespoons of electric dishwashing detergent over night if it would do the trick. That stuff is really good at cleaning things.

You can use oven cleaner on stainless pots and on glass baking dishes, just don't get any on the plastic handles and never use oven cleaner on aluminum pots.
