I remember that my grand-grandmother was using aluminum cookware and cutlery. Beside clay and cast iron cookware, aluminum was the next option.
But, over time, like any other pot, aluminum cookware gets some brown or black marks on it. More precisely, it gets burnt!
However, I remember that was pretty nasty to see a blacky aluminum pot, even if it was thoroughly cleaned and disinfected. But, with some proper care, these burnt food residues can be easily removed from aluminum cookware.
– baking soda
– dish soap
– dish sponge
- First thing is to fill the burnt pot half with vinegar and put it to boil for 10-15 minutes.
- Vinegar will soften the burnt food, making it easier to clean. You can use a plastic scraper to remove any hardened burnt food.
- The second step is to prepare a baking soda and dish soap paste. Use the green side of a dish sponge and rub the baking paste over the burnt area. In case if the burnt is stubborn you can rub vigorously using a plastic wire dish sponge.
- At the end, rinse the aluminum pot with warm water.
!!! It’s important to respect the vinegar quantity and the boiling time.
