Tired of scrubbing stubborn stains? A smart combo of vinegar, baking soda and salt makes grime slide right off pots and pans, says our clever reader.
When it comes to cooking, I've burned just about everything. My lack of culinary skills used to make washing scorched pots and pans a dreaded task, but that fear is a thing of the past. To remove stubborn stains, I now rely on my Grandmother's solution of vinegar, baking soda and salt.
To get that blackened, baked-on grease off your cookware, first put the pot or pan on the stove. Add a tablespoon or two of salt and pour enough vinegar to cover an inch of the pot. Let it simmer over high heat, then add ¼ cup of baking soda. Reduce heat to medium.
Once most of the liquid has evaporated, remove from heat and rinse cookware with water. Then watch in wonder as the stains and grime slide off with mild scrubbing! For exceptionally dirty pots, repeat the process for a stain-free finish.
