Does anyone have any tips to quickly clean the egg mess out of your dove pan when you have only a few minutes to get to your next show? Assume you don't have access to a washroom.

Thanks,
-Mike

Mike, do you set the contents on fire before the production or just change the ingredients? If you don't use the fire, spray the pan with a non stick spray like Pam. A quick wipe with a paper towel should clean it up enough until you can get to some real soap and water. You could use the spray even if you do use fire, just use a little bit. PAM is flammable but should be OK for a short time.

Maybe some kind of plastic liner, unless you set fire to the contents first.

It is a single load dove pan and I set it on fire.

That's what I figured. The PAM should work. It won't explode and I assume you use lighter fluid anyway so worst case it would just add to the flame a bit.

Another ideas might be to just carry a small water spritzer and a paper towel with you. A few srays and a wipe should take care of the mess until you can really wash it.

I suppose you could use a blown egg. A little acting ability could make this quite real for the audience. I'd crack it into the pan, pretending to shake the contents from the egg and wiping my hands on a paper towel.

It's been a long time since there has been a baby in the house, but Wet Ones will fix a lot of problems! (I've never seen any harm to metal from them either. They will cause some colors on paper and fabric to run.)

You can also get some for chrome from ArmourAll in the auto section of the store.

I do use a blown egg rather than a real one. On stage I try to leave nothing to chance. (For silk to egg, of course, I use real eggs. But I don't mix real eggs and metal when there is a choice.)
