If you’ve ever used a nonstick pan, you know it’s not easy to clean. Many people have had issues with them because they do not clean them properly.

Soap is not always the best way to clean your pots and pans. Using a degreaser can be a time-saving alternative, especially if you have a busy schedule. Also, if you have a lot of pots or pans to clean, it may be more efficient to use a degreaser than to wash them by hand.

Baking soda can be used to remove stubborn stains from your pots. If you’re having trouble with stubborn stains on your dishes or pans, use a half cup of baking soda mixed with one cup of water. Use a plastic or stainless steel strainer to strain the mixture, and then rinse the pan thoroughly with cold water. Dry with a paper towel and apply a coat of cooking oil to help prevent any future staining.

A baking soda mixture is a good way to clean your oven, especially if you have a nonstick surface. Just remember to ensure your oven is empty before you begin this process. There is no harm in leaving baking soda in your oven for a long time, but you should only use it if your oven has been cleaned out already. Another thing to remember is that you shouldn’t use baking soda on aluminum pans.

This works well for baked food because baking soda contains a lot of sodium. In addition, baking soda dissolves in water, which makes this cleaning solution work well. The baking soda also creates a pH balance in the water left in your oven.
