This is because some stains and sticky surfaces always give a tough time. However, there are quite a few tips which one can follow to keep the cookware spick and span clean without stains or even scratches. How you clean your cookware after cooking. This largely depends on what kind of material you are using. Each material, whether your pots and pans are made of stainless steel, aluminum, cast iron, Pyrex glass or silicone, have their own advantages and disadvantages.
If you are cleaning roasting pans for example, some dish washing detergent, measuring a small cup, could be sprinkled at the bottom to which hot water should be added. If you leave this to soak for a few hours or all through the night, the roasting pan can be scrubbed clean the next morning. If your struggle is against copper cookware, then you must know that sprinkling the tarnished area with salt and them sprinkling some fresh lemon juice will be very effective.
You can gently, rub and clean the area and then rinse to find them immaculate. Sprinkling detergent powders and soaking in hot water is effective with many different types of material including muffin pans and grungy cookie sheets. You can also use a paste of the detergent with water to clean these vessels.
When it comes to aluminum it is good if you stay clear of caustic acids and other such solutions which can react with the metal. You can use 3 TBS cream of tartar though for every 1 quart of water and then boil for 15 minutes. After this you can scrub the surface of the aluminum vessel absolutely clean.
Always try to stay away from dish washing machines for tough stains. Or you have a lot of dishes to clean and you think you must use your dishwashing machine, it is a better idea to do the following:
Rinse of your dishes before putting them in the dishwasher.
Use top quality dishwashing detergent
Wash your dishes twice; Prewash them using lighter dishwashing soap then wash it with more dishwashing soap
Rinse your dishes again after you take them out of dishwasher. Depending on how good your dishwasher is, you may to do more than just rinsing. Some dishes you may have to wash manually so in those cases you can use the guidance we provided above.
