How to get rid of burns and hardened fat from stainless steel cookware
– baking soda
– dish sponge
Never scrub stainless steel cookware with wire sponges or abrasive detergents. Leave them soaked for several hours in lukewarm water and liquid dish detergent. Add 1 teaspoon of baking soda to make this solution more effective.
Later, use a soft sponge and vigorously rub the burning spots or grease from the stainless steel surfaces. The same tip is also useful for stainless steel or microwave ovens made from the same material.
If stains don’t clean thoroughly, wipe the pot or pan with a paper towel, to be dry, and then sprinkle over it baking soda.
