3 tricks to polish burnt pans and leave them like new

Surely it has happened to you that  you have left a pan on the heat  a little longer than necessary and subsequently you have noticed the appearance of very annoying stains. The continuous use of  pots and pans  exposes them to the risk of stains that are more or less difficult to remove.

Some dish detergents can even make the problem worse. In addition, it is likely that by scrubbing excessively to remove stains we will end up permanently damaging our pan.

Luckily, there are  natural tricks to remove the toughest stains from pots and pans  , even burnt stains.

1. Detergent

This little-known trick is very effective in making pans that have a lot of embedded grease that cannot be removed with anything, look like new again.

Pour a teaspoon of detergent directly onto the grease, without adding water.

Pour a little fine salt over the detergent, covering the entire surface. Then use a dry sponge to remove all the grease effortlessly. Finally, rinse with plenty of water.

2. Baking soda

If salt is great against grease, baking soda is even great. You can use this remedy both to remove grease and to recover burnt pans.

Mix two parts baking soda with 1 part alcohol until smooth.

Then rub the solution on the burned part of the pan with a sponge, then rinse and finally dry well to avoid stains.

3. Hand soap

If the grease is very embedded, you can try to remove it with the hand soap trick. Place the pan or pot on the stove for a few seconds and then remove it.

Be very careful, pour some hand soap on the grease stains and then scrub vigorously with a steel sponge. This process must be repeated several times. If your pan is nonstick, replace the steel sponge with a regular sponge.

Now that you know how  to recover burnt pots and pans  and remove accumulated grease, you’ll think twice before throwing them away.
