Let's face it, we've all been there. You're making dinner for the family and things are going great...until you've got one pot that's burnt to a crisp.

Now, you're left with a big mess and no idea how to clean it. But don't worry, we're here to help. With this guide, you'll be able to clean your burnt pots so well that even your husband won't be able to tell they were ever burnt in the first place!

What Do You Need?

  • Dish soap,
  • Baking soda, and white vinegar,
  • A scrub brush (or an old toothbrush),
  • A sponge.

Quick Guide: Step-By-Step

Step 1: Fill the pot with water and add a generous amount of dish soap. Let the pot soak for at least 30 minutes.

Step 2: After the pot has soaked, bring the mix on the stovetop, turn on the heat at low heat, and simmer the mixed water for about 5-8 minutes.

Step 3: After it has simmered, turn off the heat, drain it and clean the pot with warm water before beginning to scrub.

Step 4: Take your brush (or toothbrush) and start scrubbing at the burnt on food. It should start to come off relatively easily.

Step 5: If there are any stubborn stains remaining, mix together equal parts baking soda and vinegar. Apply the mixture to the stains and let it sit for 5-10 minutes before scrubbing again.

Step 6 (Optional): Remove any lingering odors by boiling a mixture of water and lemon peels in the pot for 10 minutes. Let the pot cool completely before using it again.

Step 7: Once the pot is clean, rinse it off with warm water and dry it with a clean towel.

And that's it! With these simple steps, you'll be able to clean your burnt pots quickly and easily...so well that even your husband won't be able to tell they were ever burnt in the first place!
