Tip of the day

I just need to share something super domestic with you...

The inside base of my stainless steel pot had a layer of cooked on food from the pot of soup I had made, and I could not get it off after scrubbing and scrubbing. I looked it up (yay internet) and found a little tip.
I patted the inside of the pot dry, poured lemon juice, just enough to cover the bottom of the pot, and left it to sit for 20 minutes or so. When I came back to check if it worked, all the food had lifted and was sort of floating in a solid layer, AND my pot looked brand spankin' new! Easiest clean-up ever!! Just wish I had looked that up before attempting to scrub for so long...

Anywhoozers, there's my awesome domestic tip for the day :)


  1. Great tip I never knew that. I wonder if you could do that just to make a pot look new inside.

  2. I'm trying it on all my other pots because they are starting to look pretty used and spotty, so we'll see how it goes, but I don't see why not! :)
