How to wash a frying pan with the two-cup method: the result will amaze you

Plain water and vinegar will clean the pan better than household chemicals

A frying pan, especially one used for cooking over high heat, can quickly become covered with soot and a layer of burnt fat that is not easy to remove, even with really strong detergents. Scraping off this layer mechanically is also a bad idea, as it can damage the non-stick coating or scratch the cast iron, for example.

A cleaning method that is popularly called "two glasses" will come to the rescue here. OBOZ.UA tells you what it consists of.

First, wait until the pan has cooled down after use, and then pour one glass of cold water into it. It is important to avoid sudden changes in temperature, as this can damage the item, leaving microcracks or chips in the coating. Immediately afterwards, pour a glass of white vinegar into the water. The detergent is ready.

If the pan is deep, you can increase the amount of solution proportionally. The main thing is that the ratio of water and vinegar should be 1:1.

After that, put the pan on the stove over medium heat. When the liquid in it boils, the heat is reduced to a minimum and left for 5-10 minutes. During this time, the water and vinegar mixture should have a deep effect on the dirt on the walls of the pan.

When the time is up, pour the mixture out of the pan and wait for it to cool. Then wipe the inside of the pan with a soft brush or sponge to remove the softened dirt.

If the first time you use the product, it didn't work as you expected, you can repeat the procedure. But this time, you can add a tablespoon of baking soda to the mixture.
