Every day you use various kitchen utensils when preparing food. At one point, they get dirty by grease, food debris and bacteria: this means you have to clean them before reusing.

Unfortunately, most commercially available cleaning products contain chemicals, substances that can have harmful effects on our skin, causing allergic reactions and other health problems, but also on the environment.

The good news is that we don’t have to spend much money on all sorts of chemicals if we want to clean our kitchen utensils. Below we will present some tricks to clean your kitchen utensils naturally without endangering your own health or harming the environment.

How to remove grease from the bottom of the pot

If you want to remove the fat that accumulates on your pots and pans, cut a medium size potato in half and peel it. Cover the potato halves core with baking soda and use them as a sponge to clean the bottom of your pots. The results will not disappoint you!

For best possible results: when cleaning the pot, remove the dirt that accumulates on the potato and add a new layer of baking soda.

How to clean the inside of the pots

If you want to remove food debris and grease that can accumulate on the inside of your pots, take a tea bag (unused) and use it as a sponge. Rub the inside of the pots and in a few seconds the grease will dissolve.

You may need 2-3 tea bags for each pot, so choose cheaper teas before implementing this trick.

How to get grease marks off outside of pan

It’s not hard at all to remove the fat that accumulates on the outside of your pots and pans. Simply take a pot slightly larger than the one you want to clean it, fill it with water and add 4-5 tablespoons of baking soda.

Put the larger pan on the stove, put the little pan inside the larger one and leave them together over the heat for half an hour. As you can see, this method requires more time, but the results will not disappoint you – there is no better way to remove grease from pots and pans!
