We’ve all been there – distracted from cooking by TV or a phone call, you come back to find your meal burnt and stuck to the pan. But it doesn’t mean you need to throw the pan away – there’s plenty of solutions already waiting in your kitchen cupboards that will provide an easy fix for burnt pans.
Lime and salt
Skip the margaritas for an evening and use the ingredients to freshen up your kitchen utensils.
Pour salt into the pan where burnt food is and then squeeze a lime on top, and leave for half an hour or so.
Afterwards, wash as normal and scrub to watch the marks come away with ease.
As always, baking soda is one of the most versatile kitchen cupboard ingredients that can be used to clean just about anything.
Pour baking soda and water into the pan and simmer for around half an hour.
Leave to soak overnight and scrub away in the morning.
