How To Clean A Baking Pan

Burnt on baking pans are the number one reason that I used to avoid certain recipes. They are the yummiest dishes but also guaranteed to produce a burnt-on mess - though I did NOT actually burn the food. It is just the way they are. 

cleaning tips, household hints, baking soda uses

What kind of dishes? I am talking about pot roast, beef stew and brisket: three delicious tummy warming dinners that my family loves. But how I dreaded the clean up. Whether made in the oven or a crockpot, the cleaning chore ahead was inevitable -that is, until now! 

Finally, I discovered the so simple cure. It is really a dream come true. What is it?  Baking soda! Yes. Nothing fancy but you are going to love this.

I extolled the hidden virtues of baking soda some time ago in "15 Great Uses For Baking Soda" covering everything from insect bite treatment to a key ingredient in your child's Erupting Volcano Science Fair Experiment - but this? How did I miss this?

How To Clean Burnt-On Food In A Baking Pan

Warm water
1/4 - 1/2 cup baking soda

Rinse the pan with water.
Pour in dry baking soda.

Add lots of very warm water to cover all the burnt on food.
Let the pan stand for at least 15 - 30 minutes.

Next, place the pan in the sink -if it isn't already there- and rub the interior with a kitchen brush.

The burnt-on food will lift off easily!
Pour out the dirty water.
Add dish soap, clean warm water and,  using a sponge, clean it the rest of the way.
Sparkling clean!

Smelly Sneakers? Get Rid Of That Nasty Odor

sneakers, cleaning tips, household hints,

Have a pair of sneakers that you just love but, ooooh the smell - who can stand them! Don't throw them away just yet. Try baking soda!  I did and it worked.

Baking soda is a natural deodorizer. Just sprinkle baking soda in each shoe, shake it around so that the powder gets in all the crevices and dump out the residue over a sink or waste basket. 

Wear them! 
Check it out when you take them off again. They should smell just fine. Repeat every once in a while to maintain freshness. (By the way, canvas shoes can be washed so, if yours are canvas, wash them!)

link up

How this party will help you the most=> this party is designed to bring lots of new traffic to your recipe posts. 

The only way that is going to happen is if we share each other's recipes on social media. We ask that EVERYBODY pin and yum every recipe. If we do, we all should get lots and lots of fresh exposure to our work every week!  You can even COME BACK and yum and pin some more. Party is open till Friday night for entries but pins and yums continue. 

Two other things to remember...
  • ONE recipe per post - no collections or roundups, please.

We invite you to follow our hosts...
