1. Scorched pans
It happens to the best of us: you’re cooking something and let it sit in the pan a little too long. Now you’re left with a burned-on mess at the bottom. This is easily solved using baking soda and vinegar.
Sprinkle on enough baking soda to cover the bottom of the pan, and then using a spray bottle or a dropper, add enough vinegar to make it fizz nicely.
Let it sit for a few minutes, and then wash it.
The burned-on residue will wipe away easily! This also works for baked-on grease.
2. Shower door track and drain
Over time, soap deposits and other messy things can build up in your shower door track and the drain. You can solve this with baking soda and vinegar as well.
Sprinkle baking soda over the entire area and follow it up with vinegar.
Let it sit for a few minutes and then wipe it down with hot water.
No more unsightly (& sometimes stinky) mess!
