How to clean very old pans: “magic” life hack

Old pans often have carbon deposits that are difficult to clean with conventional methods. Burnt fat, dirt and food residues create a layer of black soot both outside and inside the pan, so sometimes housewives, not knowing how to clean it, are forced to throw pots in a landfill.

But there is one effective life hack that our grandmothers still use. GLOBAL HAPPENINGS figured out how to clean very old pots.

You need to take:

  • large container (eg bucket)
  • 4 liters of water
  • laundry soap
  • silicate glue
  • soda

In a ten-liter bucket or other large container, you should collect 4 liters of water and put it on fire. Inside we put the pan, which needs to be washed. While the water is heating, you need to grate laundry soap (1/2 bar) and pour silicate glue into a glass. As soon as the water starts to boil, add shavings and glue to it.

Soda will enhance the cleansing effect. Suitable either food or calcined. For 4 liters of water, measure 1/3 pack of soda.

Please note that this method will not work for uncoated aluminum pans.

The resulting mixture is gently stirred and boiled for at least another 30 minutes. If the soot is too strong, you can increase the time by another 10-15 minutes.

Then you should take out the pan and wash it under running water.
