4-Step Cleaning Magic!

Have you ever cooked something and found that all your scrubbing and scrubbing does nothing to remove the burnt-on bits left on your pan or baking dish? As much as I love making and eating a frittata, cleaning the pan afterward has always been a chore. more! That's because I've discovered the easy and non-toxic way to clean my pots and pans. All you need is baking soda and hydrogen peroxide (or warm water), a sponge, and some time. I swear, it truly is that easy! And you don't even need to wear gloves. Follow along...

Step 1: Gather supplies. You'll need Baking Soda, Hydrogen Peroxide (or warm water), and a bowl to mix it in.
Step 2: Put about 1/4 cup of Baking Soda into a bowl, and add enough hydrogen peroxide to make a paste. It's too thin in my picture here, I added more baking soda to thicken it up after the shot was taken.

Step 3: Take your dirty pan, and smear the paste over it. Let the paste sit for at least 2 hours, overnight is even better.
