1. Soak Burned Pots With Soap Or Salt

You can clean a scorched pot by soaking it. However, the results here will be highly dependent on the degree of scorching. Some of the things you need for the cleaning part include:

• An empty sink

• Hot or cold water

• Salt or dishwashing liquid

• Spatula or wooden spoon

Pour a few drops of the dishwashing liquid into the put and run the water until the scorched area is completely submerged in the water. Alternatively, you can add 1or 2 tablespoons of salt instead of dishwashing liquid. Let the pot soak for about an hour. Use the wooden spoon or spatula to remove the residue.

If there is some burnt food at the bottom of your pot, you need to pour out the water and refill it again. Boil it and maintain the same temperature for at least 10 minutes. Turn off the heat and let the scorched pot remain in the mixture overnight. In the morning, boil the mixture again and use a wooden spoon or spatula to remove the remaining grime. Now you can wash your pot normally and it will be shiny and new.

2. Using Lemons To Remove Grime

Lemons contain citric acid which has some amazing properties when it comes to removing grime. Here are some of the things you need when using lemons to remove grime from a scorched pot.

• 2 or 3 lemons

• A wooden spoon or spatula

• Water

Start by filling the pot with water. Cut the lemons into quarters and put them into the water. Next, you should boil the water for about 3 to 5 minutes. Turn off the heat and let the mixture cool down before throwing out the lemons and the water. Use the wooden spoon or spatula to remove the burnt food from the bottom part of the pot. Now, you can wash your pot normally for the best results.

3. Using Baking Soda And Vinegar

For this, you will need the following:

• A cup of distilled white vinegar

• 2 tbsps of baking soda

• 1 to 2 cups of water

• A wooden spoon or spatula

Pour the vinegar into the pot and add some water. Boil the mixture then turn off the heat. Make sure the burnt pot is on the sink before you add the baking soda. There should be a fizz once you add the baking soda and let the mixture sit in for a few minutes before the fizz dies down. Now you can pour out the mixture and scrape the bottom part of the pot using the spatula or wooden spoon. Finally, you can wash your pot and rinse it thoroughly for the best results.
