How to clean a burnt pan
A minute of inattention and the bottom of your favorite saucepan has completely burned? It’s time for you to know these green tips that will help you save your burnt casserole.
Clean a pan with baking soda and white vinegar
Sprinkle the bottom of your casserole dish with baking soda and add a little water (just enough to cover the baking soda). If you want to have immediate results, you can heat this solution and then clean your pan with the paste obtained. Otherwise, let it act all night then wash your pan with this mixture then rinse.
As soon as you notice your pan burning, remove it from the heat and using a wooden spoon, remove any dry debris that breaks easily. Next, pour white vinegar into your saucepan and heat it up. The burn marks will disappear as the white vinegar heats up.
Another trick with white vinegar is to pour it with water in equal proportions into the pan and let it sit for several hours. You will only have to wash your pan as usual.
The combination of white vinegar + baking soda is one of the most popular winning combinations for restoring shine to pans. To use it, pour water and white vinegar into the pan at the rate of a large glass of water then add to the mixture a tablespoon of baking soda.
Then put the pan on the fire and wait 10 minutes after the start of boiling (without the mixture evaporating) then remove the pan from the heat. You can finally rub your pan with this mixture using a rough sponge.
Cleaning a pan with table salt
You can also use salt to clean a burnt casserole. To do this, sprinkle fine salt on a cloth soaked in water and use it to rub your casserole dish. Finally, add a little water to the casserole with the contents obtained after cleaning and bring everything to a boil.
Still with the salt, another trick is to sprinkle it in the bottom of a saucepan and then leave to cook for several hours or even overnight in the best case. Then you just have to clean your pan as usual.
Cleaning a pan with lemon
Lemon is also used to restore burnt pans to their full shine. To do this, use a cloth soaked in water to which you have added lemon juice to clean the pan.
After cleaning, add water and lemon juice to the pan (while keeping the cleaned residue in it) to a boil. Then, all you have to do is turn off the heat and let it cool to empty the pan and rinse it.
Wood ash for a clean pan
If you have wood ash in your home, pour some into the pot and add water to it so that the mixture forms a slightly pasty solution. Boil for a few minutes then wash your casserole using this paste. Finally, rinse thoroughly.
Flour, salt and white vinegar to wash your pans
To make your burnt casserole shine again, another alternative is to make a homemade paste made from flour, salt and white vinegar. To produce it, mix in equal proportions the flour and the salt then add the white vinegar so as to form a paste.
Once the latter has been obtained, use it to clean the burnt parts of the casserole using a brush and then rinse with hot water.
Wash a pan with dishwashing liquid
Heat water with your usual dishwashing liquid in the bottom of the burned casserole dish immediately after the incident. Then rub with a brush and rinse with warm water.
Soda crystals for burnt pan bottoms
If the bottom of your saucepan is burnt, pour boiling water over it while adding soda crystals and let it stand overnight. When you wake up, all you have to do is empty your pan and wash it as you are used to.
Use citric acid
Another technique to get rid of burnt in a casserole is to pour boiling water to which you will add 2 tablespoons of citric acid. Then let it sit for a few minutes and rinse several times. You can eventually finish by washing the casserole dish with your usual dishwashing liquid.
And There you go! No more question of abandoning your burnt casserole on the pretext that it is unrecoverable.
