Clean your burnt pan with just vinegar & baking soda
It’s easy to get your pan burnt, especially if you’re not an expert at cooking. Getting black crusty stuff all over your pan is horrible and a real pain to remove. Soap scrubbing just doesn’t do the trick. Vinegar and baking soda however might work like magic.
- Baking Soda
First, fill your burnt pan with some water and add some vinegar to it. Then, bring the pan with vinegar to boil. By this point, it would start to look a little less burnt.
Once the mixture has started boiling, you may remove the pan from the fire. Then, add in baking soda and let it fizz for a little while. If the burnt mark is stubborn and hard to come off, add more baking soda with water before scrubbing them clean. Remember not to use a metal scourer if your pan has Teflon coating or else the coating will peel off.
Once that’s done, your pan should look like new!
Lemon is the next detergent trend
Another example of natural ingredients being the best detergent – Lemon or lemon water. Lemon is high in citric acid and makes a good cleaning detergent due to its low pH and antibacterial properties. Besides, lemon has natural great smells which makes your windows smell good too.
