How to restore shine to aluminum cookware: a simple trick

Aluminum cookware

Aluminum cookware is practical and inexpensive, with high thermal conductivity, heating up and cooling down quickly. It is often used for various cooking purposes. Aluminum pots, plates, and spoons are not prone to rust due to the thin oxide film on their surface, preventing direct contact between food and the metal. However, aluminum cookware tends to tarnish quickly. Here's how to clean pots and pans to restore their shine.

The excellent thermal conductivity of aluminum cookware can cause food to stick to its surface, and if cooking times are not carefully monitored, dishes can be easily spoiled. Removing burnt residues can be time-consuming, and the use of aggressive chemical detergents may damage the cookware's surface and destroy the protective film.

An effective and natural life hack for cleaning aluminum cookware involves using a single ingredient: apple peels.

Step 1: Peel a few apples.

Step 2: Place the apple peels in the dirty saucepan, cover them with water, and heat on the stove.

Step 3: Bring the water with the apple peels to a boil. After boiling, turn off the stove and let the solution sit for 30 minutes.

Step 4: After the pan has cooled completely, wash it with regular dishwashing detergent, rinse, and dry.

A pleasant bonus of this method is the rich fruity aroma left behind. The key to the effectiveness of this method lies in the acid released from the apple peels, which dissolves scale, dirt, and stains, restoring shine to the aluminum surface.
