Cleaning cookware and bakeware

Tips for Cleaning Cookware and Stain Removal

Cleaning after cooking may not be a fund thing you but have to do it. Cleaning cookware and bakeware might not be the best job in the world and not even those who love their cookware and bakeware will want to take it up. 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 also 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 laundry 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.
