Because when food sticks or the bottom is blackened, you have to use professional advice to make the pot, pan, or saucepan shiny. It’s possible! Follow these 7 valuable tips:

1. SCRUBBER YES, BUT WITH CARE
To clean a burned pot, the metal scourer is always an option, but you can only use it in pots, pans, or pans that do not have a non-stick coating, otherwise, it will spoil. When you detect that the bottom of the container has burned, add hot water, a jet of dish soap, and let it act for a few minutes so that the layer softens (you can put it on the fire). Then you can pass the scourer.

2. A SOFT SPONGE FOR TEFLON
Each pot needs its own. It is important that you keep in mind that the scourer is used in stainless steel, iron, copper, clay, or aluminum pots. For Teflon or ceramic (non-stick) you should use a soft sponge or blue scouring pad and, if you have to scratch, always do it gently with a Teflon, plastic, or wooden utensil.

3. USE BICARBONATE TO CLEAN YOUR POTS
Baking soda is a powerful cleaner. You will need a tablespoon of baking soda for every liter and a half of water. Heat water in the pot over medium heat, wait for it to boil, add the bicarbonate, stir to dissolve, let it continue to boil for a few more minutes, remove from the heat and scrape with a wooden spatula. When everything is detached, empty the pot, let it cool, and scrub as usual. More things you can clean with bicarbonate.

4. CLEAN YOUR BURNT POT WITH VINEGAR
Cover the bottom of the burned pot with white vinegar and heat until it comes to a boil (mixing a cup of water and a cup of vinegar also works). Then leave it on the fire for a few minutes until it is consumed. Chill and clean the bottom. You will see how the black layer comes out without a problem. All you can do is with vinegar.

5. SALT IS ALSO VERY EFFECTIVE
Remove as much dirt as you can from the interior and then pour two or three fingers of water with two tablespoons of salt into the pot. Let it rest for half an hour and then rub. If you see that the blackened layer is not white enough, put the saucepan on the fire with the salted water and let it boil. When cool, rub.

6. A COLA DRINK… TO CLEAN POTS!
You have to try it. Open a can of cola and add it to the burned spot. Bring the liquid to a simmer, then scratch. Being an acidic product, the blackened and stuck area will come out easily.

7. THE LEMON, YOUR FINAL RESOURCE
If after carrying out any of the remedies indicated to remove the burned layer from the bottom of your pot, saucepan, or pan, black stains still remain, rub a cut lemon on the area. Then wash with the scouring pad and repeat until the surface is shiny.
