Well, I have good news for you guys because you can do this at home now! Yes, you heard me! You can now clean all the burn and scorch marks from your cookware and make it look like new again.
Just follow the below-mentioned steps from HomeGuyd.com and you will see your pots and pans shining as new again!
Materials required for cleaning:
- 1 cup of White vinegar
- 2 tablespoons of Baking Soda
- 1-2 cups of Water
- Double-sided sponge
- Your scorched/burned pot or pan
You need to fill your pot/pan with an adequate amount of water so that the stain is fully submerged in water while there is enough space to add the vinegar and baking soda. The amount of water you use depends on the size of your utensil and the area of the stain.
Once you have added water to your pan, you need to add a cup of vinegar or less depending on the size of your pot and the area of your stain. Make sure that you leave enough space to add baking soda. If the stain is small, you can add less amount of vinegar and if the stain is bigger, then you can add more amount of vinegar. It all really depends on the size.
Now, take your pot or pan on the stove and start it. Bring your mixture to a slow boil. You will notice that the stain’s appearance starts reducing a little.
Once you have bought your pan/pot to a low boil, take it off the burner and then add 1-2 tablespoons of baking soda. Let this sit for a few minutes and let the baking soda do its fuzzy work. After a few minutes, empty your pot/pan.
Once your pot/pan is empty of the mixture, take a sponge and scrub the pot/pan with the caustic side of the sponge. Do this for a few minutes and you will notice that the burned marks will have started coming off. If the burned marks are stubborn then you can sprinkle a little dry baking soda on top of the mark to help in burning the marks away. Keep scrubbing your pot/pan with the sponge until the mark is completely off. If you don’t see the proper result, you can repeat the steps again.
Once you are satisfied with your Pot/Pan’s appearance, you can then rinse it with water and look for any remnant marks. Your cookware will look as good as new and will smell amazing too. Make sure that you dry your cookware before storing it somewhere safe else it might grow bacteria and get damaged.
