Baking soda and vinegar are cheap and effective cleaners. There are so many amazing ways to use them around your house to keep everything clean.
I have been using homemade cleaning products for almost two years now and absolutely love the switch! I am always on the hunt for new cleaning recipes, I figure why not try a new recipe and see what my favorite ends up being. My main “go-to” cleaner is the vinegar and water solution, it’s great and I use it as my grab and clean source for disinfecting.
One of my most recent discoveries is baking soda and vinegar for pots and pans. I have several older pans that show their “age” and until now have not been able to bring them back to looking like new or even barely used.
What you do is take your pan and soak it in vinegar, just plain vinegar and not diluted. Let it soak for at least an hour but the longer the better. Once you are done soaking the pan pour the vinegar out and sprinkle baking soda on the pan and start scrubbing. This really doesn’t take much scrubbing either before you start to see the “yuck” slide right off.
After that you simply rinse and look at your back to new pot or pan. I was absolutely amazed at how well this worked and there was no harsh chemicals involved which makes me extremely happy.
