Leave it all night resting and you should be able to clean it up the next day without a problem.


Cleaning pans with Coca-Cola

It might sound weird but Coca-Cola does help to clean a lot of things. First, you should add two cans of cola to the pans and leave it for a few hours. After you have left it to rest for a while, remove the coke and wash the pan with hot water and wash up liquid.


Cleaning pans with lemon and salt

Cover the spots that are burnt or need attention with coarse salt. After that, cut a lemon and squeeze it directly onto the salt. To rub the stained area, don’t use a harsh artefact, use a soft dish cloth to rub it gently.


Cleaning with vinegar and baking soda

Put water in your pan and add one cup of vinegar. After that you should start boiling it and meanwhile adding two tablespoons of baking soda. Let it dissolve until it starts to fizz. Let it cool for ten minutes and then remove all the damaged parts.

This cleaning tip is one of the most recommended ones and it doesn’t take a lot of work.


Cleaning pans with salt

Put a big amount of hot water into your pan and add three tablespoons of salt.  Let it soak for 10 to 15 minutes and then start boiling it for 20 minutes until it simmers.
If there remains residue after this process, leave a small amount of boiled water into the pan and let it cool. After that add two more tablespoons of salt and scrub gently.
