Clean Your Dishes Without Scratching With Baking Soda

Whether you use the dishwasher to clean your pots and pans or wash them by hand, sometimes cookware needs an extra push to get it thoroughly clean. But, the measures you take should not be taken lightly, as you run the risk of scratching the surfaces of your pots and pans.

Baking soda can be the ally you need to achieve a thorough clean without causing damage. This ingredient adds a gentle cleaning effect to remove stuck-on and tough stains on food. It’s a true secret weapon for getting rid of messes, as it also helps remove stubborn food odors from cookware.

How to use baking soda to clean dishes

Sprinkle some baking soda on the burnt food or stain. Rub the powder into the stain carefully, as it is abrasive enough to remove most food and stains without damaging the surface of your pots and pans. For stubborn stains, sprinkle baking soda on the pan, then add some water. Boil the water for 5 to 10 minutes.

Adding a dash of white distilled or apple cider vinegar to the mixture before boiling will give your stain remover even more punch. Sprinkle about one tablespoon of baking soda over the pot or pan. Add one cup of water and 1/2 cup of vinegar, then let the mixture boil for 10 minutes. Once cooled, the food or stain should come off easily.
