Default Im tight on cash..can i use a pot that had food cooked in it?

Im very tight on money these days..I need to make a starter but i do not have a pot dedicated to make only starters at the moment..I have a 2L sauce pan but food has been cooked in it..If i was to go crazy cleaning this thing can i use it to make a starter?

Of course, Be diligent cleaning it and ensure any off flavore, garlic, onions, are gone

I did this for my first 10 or so brews. Don't use dish soap to clean it is my only advise

You betcha. I even used a stock pot I've used to make jambalaya, gumbo, stew, etc in to heat up sparge water when I first got in to partial mash. As was stated earlier, make sure you clean the $h!t outta it though.

If your concerned just fill it with water and boil for about 20 minutes, refill and start your starter. That's usually what I do.
