How to clean a burnt frying pan

Burnt food in the pan is a common problem faced by many housewives. It can be difficult to clean the burnt remains of dinner because ordinary detergent won't do the job, and using harsh abrasive materials can damage the coating.

You can try using harsh chemical cleaners, but they not only have a pungent unpleasant odor but also are not always available at home. That's why House Digest has shared life hacks that require only a few ingredients that are sure to be in the kitchen.

All you have to do is turn up the heat too high or get distracted for a few minutes and your food is already burnt.

Sometimes it may seem impossible to clean such tough dirt, but there is one eco-friendly way to get your dishes back to their original appearance.

Lime and sea salt

First, sprinkle salt liberally on the bottom of the pan, and then squeeze the juice of several limes or lemons and leave it for 30 minutes. Be sure to use sea salt, not table salt.

After that, the carbon can be easily removed with a regular sponge. However, if your pan is really dirty, you may need to do this procedure several times.

The only caveat is that you should not use this method to clean non-stick cookware, as it can damage it. However, if you are using copper or stainless steel cookware, you should be fine.

Extra heavy soiling

If the lime and salt didn't help remove the carbon completely, there is another way to get rid of it.

Add a few drops of dishwashing detergent and sea salt to a frying pan and pour a little water into it. Then put it on the stove and let the mixture boil for five to seven minutes. After that, reduce the heat and "simmer" for another 10 minutes.

Wait for the pan to cool down and rinse it with warm water. The boiling should have softened the burnt food completely, so the dishes will be as good as new after washing.
