    Posted by  ·  May 15, 2014

    Another great use for vinegar! Not only does it clean your shower, unclog your drain, and polish your stainless steel it can also cleans your pots with burnt on food!

    cleaning with vinegar

    Just mix about two tablespoons vinegar per half cup water to cover burned areas (at least up an inch the side of the pan). Boil for 5 minutes then use a brush to remove all the food.  If you have any tough spots, empty liquid and add some baking soda and continue scrubbing.

      You can also cover the burnt-on area with water and put a dryer sheet in it, let soak an hour or so, and wash clean.
