I started by adding one cup of hot water and one cup of white distilled vinegar to the pot. For smaller pots, add enough of each to cover the bottom of the pot.
Next, I added 3 tablespoons of baking soda. It started fizzing a ton, which from past experience has meant it was doing it’s job and loosening up all of the burnt on bits of chili. Let the mixture rest until it cools.
Once the fizzing stopped, and the water has cooled, I poured the icky leftovers out and added a little bit of water and dish liquid to my pot and gave it a gentle scrub. Then I rinsed it and dried it with a clean towel.
And now my favorite pot is all clean! I can’t believe how clean it is..I actually don’t think it has been this clean since it was brand new!
And all thanks to my two favorite cleaners, vinegar and baking soda!
