Cleaning those dirty pans.

Post by maursey »

A little soap powder and water and bring to the boil in a saucepan when it is all stuck with food, releases it straight away.

You can also coat heavily-burned-on pans overnight in a thick paste of bicarbonate of soda. Works on oven interiors too. Does the work for you.

My mum used to use bicarbonate for that.

Bicarbonate also is useful to mix with Super Glue to fill gaps and make it go “off” quicker.

My teapot is currently having a bicarb soak overnight. Tomorrow it will look like new inside.

I use a 1% bleach solution, 100 ml in a (10 litre) washing up bowl, for my tea mugs and teapot, and my 500ml water bottles that I reuse every day, and leave them to soak overnight then wash in the normal way the next day. I use filtered water which has the chlorine (and limescale) removed so sterilising the water bottles is very important)
By the way......filtered water makes a really nice cup of tea without any scum on the top or that sharp chlorine taste from tap water.
Don't quit, never give up !
