Restoring heavily soiled and burnt kitchen appliances to their ideal state can be difficult. Even expensive, specialized detergents often do not yield the desired results. However, there is a simple and effective way to make this task easier.

Pots are among the hardest kitchen utensils to keep clean. Everyday use increases the risk of accidental burning, and it only takes a moment of inattention to burn a pot or pan.

Removing burns can be complicated and time-consuming. In the worst case, such a utensil can seem suitable only to be thrown away. But is that the case? We present a simple home remedy that will help clean even the most contaminated appliances, restoring their shine and "store-bought" look.

A simple and eco-friendly way. Reach into the fridge

Specialized cleaning products can be expensive and do not always produce the expected results. Moreover, more and more people are opting for a more eco-friendly approach to household cleaning, avoiding the use of strong detergents. We prefer simple and effective methods that are available to everyone.

There is a proven method that easily removes dirt even from very burnt pots. Everything we need can be found in every kitchen. Instead of struggling to scrub a burnt pan, just reach for some ketchup.

Ketchup is good for everything, even for cleaning

Although it may seem strange, ketchup is an excellent agent for removing tough dirt from pots and pans. It is cheap, and its effectiveness in the kitchen might surprise us. If ketchup works wonders as an addition to many dishes, why wouldn't it help with cleaning utensils? Mix it with some water and apply it to the most soiled spots. This mixture should sit for about 30 minutes.

After this time, rinse off the ketchup and wash the utensils as usual. The dirt will disappear, saving time and effort and achieving a dazzling effect. This is a simple method that saves both time and money.
