With THESE tips you can clean every type of pot and pan in your kitchen!

Sometimes those food scraps just won’t come loose

Dish soap can go a really long way, but there’s a limit to what it can do for a pot or pan. A pancake that’s caked on the bottom of your pan, burned potato scraps; some things take more than a bit of scrubbing in soapy water. Luckily, these tips will make cleaning your pots and pans a lot easier!

Stainless steel
To clean a stainless steel pot or pan, all you need is a paste of 1 teaspoon hot water and 2 teaspoons baking soda. Put this on a sponge and scrub away. If the stains are too stubborn, you can try the following: mix together 1 tablespoon of baking soda and 1 tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide. Use a sponge to scrub briefly and then let it soak for 20 minutes. Then, you can scrub it all loose and rinse the pot or pan.

Aluminium
Do you have an aluminium pot or pan and do the scraps of food simply refuse to come loose? Make a paste of equal amounts of water and cream of tartar. Polish the stain with the paste and then rinse it with water. Are the stains more stubborn than that? Mix together 60 ml of white wine vinegar, 60 ml of water and 2 tablespoons of cream of tartar. Bring this to a boil in the pan in question and turn off the heat. Let it soak for an hour and then wash the pan as you would otherwise.

Glass
Made lasagna in a glass oven dish and now the scraps won’t come away? Put the dish in the sink and cover it with hot water. Mix about 30 grams of baking soda through the water and let it soak. Use a sponge to scrub the dish and then wash it with hot water and dish soap.

Copper
Most people don’t own a copper pot or pan, but if you do, we’re sure you want to know how to clean it properly. If there are stains or scraps you can’t get rid off, pour some vinegar into the pan. Add some salt, and then some more vinegar and use a sponge to scrub the pan.
