Another installment of advice to help you pass the time if you are still quarantined at home. And even if you are not, you may still be able to use some of these techniques.
- Burnt on Food – take dish soap, cream of tartar, baking soda and an old credit card. Combine equal parts of cream of tartar and baking soda in the bottom of the pan. Then add a couple drops of dish soap and enough water to make a runny paste that will cover the burnt areas. Let soak and then scrub off with the credit card. Bet you thought I was going to say, “if it didn’t come clean, use the credit card to buy a new one.” LOL.
- Cast Iron Pans – add a ¼ cup of kosher salt to the pan and scrub with hot water. Once you get it clean you will have to re-season the pan. This is a deep clean method. To re-season, heat the pan until water dances on it and then remove from heat and coat lightly with oil.
- Cheesy Cheese Grater – Grate a piece of raw potato after you do your cheese. The potato will take off all the leftover cheese bits.
- Charcoal Grill – get a white onion, half it, stab it with a cooking fork in the smaller end and then rub the onion back and forth over the grill grates. The onion deglazes the grates and will add a bit of flavor next time you cook.
- Cloudy Glasses – pour a few tablespoons of rubbing alcohol into the glass container you want to clean. Then wipe or swirl the alcohol around and it will clean the glass. You can follow up with a quick warm water and soap clean up or just leave it out to dry.
- Coffee Mugs Stains – put about 1 tablespoon of baking soda into the bottom of the mug you want to clean, add a drop or two of dish soap and a drop of vinegar. Fill the mug halfway with warm water. Wait 30 seconds or more depending on the amount of stain. Then wash out in the sink.
Well that about does it for this week. I will get you some more next week.
