Make the Burnt Bottoms of Your Pans Spotless Again

Are the bottoms of your pots and pans all black and burnt from years of cooking? If you’ve scrubbed and scrubbed to no avail, TikTok has a solution for you.

Content creator, @ramdeep_osahan, posted a method for getting all that burnt-on grime off the bottoms of your pans and making them sparkle like new again. Not only does it not require a lot of scrubbing, but you probably already have everything you need to try this hack.

To do it, put your pan in a sink or take it outside (a lot of grime is going to come off of it). Cover the burnt underside with a few pinches each of salt and baking soda. Next, squirt some dish soap all over the back, give it a light scrub with some steel wool, then cover it in tissues.

Finally, pour some white vinegar over the top and let it sit for a few minutes. Remove the tissue, and you’ll see all that dirt come off. Do one more scrub with the steel wool, and you’re all done!
