How to Use Baking Soda to Clean Pots & Pans

Sprinkle a little baking soda onto burnt on food or stains. Rub the soda into the stain. It’s abrasive enough to remove most food and stains without damaging the surface of your pots and pans. For more resistant stains, sprinkle the pan with baking soda then add a little water. Bring the water to a boil for 5 to 10 minutes.

Adding a little white distilled or apple cider vinegar to the mix before boiling will give you an even stronger stain remover. Sprinkle the pot or pan with about a tablespoon of baking soda. Add a cup of water and 1/2 cup of vinegar then  boil the mix for 10 minutes. The food or stain should wipe away easily once cooled.
