Turkey Tracks: Clean Pots and Pans

Clean Pots and Pans

Friend Linda McKinney found the most amazing cleaning product that she mixes up at home.  Something called “Spray Nine.”  I am not even going to ask what is in it because it cleans the black grease acquired over many cooking years from the bottom and sides of pots and pans.  Yes, it also takes a lot of elbow grease and a brillo pad and a rougher metal pad, but the job gets done.

I am trying to do at least two a week now.

Looky, looky.  Of course the small one needs cleaning too.  Both of these pans/pots are beloved by me.  The omelet pan was completely black on the sides and bottom.  It will need some more work, but…

I got at the smaller pot before it gets any worse.

Next bad pot, I’ll take before and after shots.  I promise.

But I have to tell you, I’m on a pot/pan cleaning roll.

Thanks Linda!

  1. Are your pots stainless or aluminum? I think one uses different methods. Baking soda seems to do a good job on my stainless. (I didn’t say perfect) What a fantastic way to get a jump on Spring House cleaning. I bet you’ll enjoy cooking a lot more with a smile on your face with the like-new pots. Did No No Penny help?
    Have a wonderful day with your next.

    1. All my pots are stainless. I got rid of all cooking aluminum years ago, including foil, when it became clear that aluminum and humans don’t mix well. I use parchment paper to line pans, etc. These pots were BLACK!! You would have gasped. So baking soda just couldn’t get at them, even when mixed with some vinegar and soaked. I’ll take a picture when I do another bad one–though most are clean now. It also took a fair amount of elbow grease and Brillo pads, etc. But they’re so clean now that they lift my heart when I look at them. Hugs to you today!!!
