Inattention or poor cooking skills can lead to burned food and thus pots and pans. After cooking, they can be marred by an unfortunate prepared dish. Regardless of what caused our cooking utensils to burn, it is a good idea to clean up the whole mess

Everyone has their own method for cleaning burnt pots. In the following article, we will cite the most effective ways to clean a burnt surface and do it the easy way. No more long hours spent at the sink. With just a few tricks, you can easily clean your pots after cooking

Water, vinegar and baking soda can work wonders

The first method to remove burnt food from the surface of a pot or pan is very simple. When you are done cooking, simply pour a cup of water, a cup of vinegar into the dirty pot and put the pot back on the stove. After boiling, add 2 tablespoons of baking soda to the whole thing. To enhance the effect, you can add a few more drops of dishwashing liquid. Leave the whole to cool. If after pouring out the concoction food remains will not come off easily, for another 15-20 minutes you can apply a paste of baking soda and a few drops of water

After that, rinse everything with a stream of running water and then wipe with a dishwasher. This is a simple and effective method in which we will use natural cleaning products. However, if we have little time for cleaning, we should rather let it go, because it is quite time-consuming. Especially, in case of heavily burnt surfaces, it may be necessary to scrub the bottom of the pot

Soak the burnt surface

This method can also be used in any home, because you don’t need any complicated agents or detergents for it. All you need is a wire scourer and dishwashing liquid. The way is to pour a few drops of dishwashing liquid along with hot water on the bottom of the burnt pan, then leave the dish for a few hours. After that, use a wire scourer to wash the pot

Use salt

Sodium chloride, the table salt we season our dishes with, is great for fighting burnt pots and pans. Just sprinkle a thick layer of salt adjacent to the dish and add some water. Such a paste is best left for a few hours. If, after that time, the burnt-on food does not come off the pot easily, you can boil a solution of salt and water in the burnt pot to enhance the effect. After cleaning, remember to rinse the salt thoroughly from the surface of the pot

Dishwasher tablets

Dishwasher tablets are fantastic for cleaning badly burnt pots. Simply crush a tablet and sprinkle it on the bottom of the pot, then pour in a small amount of water. As with the previous methods, it’s best to leave the burnt pot or pan for a few hours for the detergent to take effect. Dishwasher tablets can be successfully replaced by highly concentrated baking powder

Rice as a remedy for burnt dishes

Rice can be a very good ally in cleaning burned surfaces. Put a few grains of raw rice into a burnt pot, then add water and bring the whole thing to a boil. It is important to constantly replenish the water and make sure that the rice does not burn. Grains absorb water and cause the impurities to peel off the bottom of the pot. Once the rice has cooled, discard it and wash the pot

Aluminum foil

The first step is to make a paste of 2-3 tablespoons of baking soda and a small amount of water. Then you need to apply it on the burnt areas. Then form a ball out of aluminum foil and scrub the inside of the pot with it until you remove the stuck-on dirt. Then rinse the pot with warm water and dishwashing liquid. The baking soda paste may make it difficult to see the nooks and crannies that need to be scrubbed, so you may have to repeat the process
