Try using TSP instead of liquid laundry detergent. I clean my paint brushes,
pans, pots, etc., with TSP and the dried paint comes right off. Seems to me
they even mention this use on the box (Rainbow brand).
This is first I've heard of this method. Very clever and cheap. I
think I'd look for a cooker on Freecycle, though, and dedicate it to
stripping. Lots of that old hardware is covered in lead-based paint. I
wouldn't want to trust that just washing out the pot would remove all of
the lead (and other good chemicals).
