You Will Need
- Baking soda
- A sponge or paper towel
- A fabric-softener sheet
Sprinkle baking soda
Sprinkle baking soda in the pot or pan, so it coats the bottom entirely.
Moisten with water
Add enough warm water for the baking soda to become a paste.
Let it sit for at least ten minutes; the longer you let it soak, the better. The sodium bicarbonate will penetrate the stuck-on food and loosen it.
Wipe the pot with a sponge or damp paper towel.
Don’t give up
Food still stuck? Add more baking soda and water, and this time boil the mixture in the pot for a few minutes. Let it cool, then wipe clean.
