Utensils are the face of the hostess, since her tidiness can be judged by the state of the glasses, plates and pans in the kitchen. However, if you rub glasses with polish, clean plates or clean kitchen silver quite easily, all you need is patience and enough free time, you can save the cauldron in its original state only if it is not used. Over time, a snuff appears on the walls of the kazanchik, and if it is not immediately cleaned, then it will seem like a sponge to attract fat and dirt, which means that the situation will only get worse. If your cauldron is covered with a layer of soot, and you are already desperate to clean it, then our advice will come in handy, because today we will talk about how to clean the cauldron from soot.
To clear the cauldron from the eaten and blackened over time traces of fat in several ways. We will not take into account the cleaning of dishes with the means offered on the market today. Since going to the store of household chemicals, you can choose a similar tool to your taste and wallet. The purpose of today's conversation, we decided to put the cleaning of the cauldron "grandmother's" means. Let's get started The “cocktail” consisting of silicate office glue and laundry soap will help to restore the former shine to the cast-iron cauldron.
A piece of this soap (you can define it by brown color and 72% of the inscription) is rubbed on a coarse grater. In a deep basin, pour water and heat it. Put the rubbed soap into the hot water and pour in the glue, reduce the heat and mix thoroughly until the soap is dissolved. Immerse the cauldron in the solution and boil it for several hours, adding water during the process. After that, cool the dishes and, armed with a metal brush, polish our cauldron to shine.
There is another variation of this method of cleaning kazanchikov. It is recommended to use caustic soda instead of household soap. Of course, the tool is very effective, but highly toxic. That is why, having decided to clean the dishes with glue and caustic, open the windows, put on glasses, gloves and a mask, protect your hair from harmful fumes.
The second method will help get rid of carbon inside the cauldron. To implement the planned salt, soda and vinegar are required. Pour a few tablespoons of salt into the cauldron and cover with vinegar. Cover with a lid and set on fire until boiling. After that, pour about 1/4 cup of baking soda into the solution and simmer on the fire until the liquid boils almost to the end. Remove the cauldron from the stove and rinse thoroughly under running water. If the walls of the cauldron still have signs of soot, use a hard washcloth to remove them.
Of course, the easiest way to close your eyes is to the cauldron blackened by time and to the thick layer of soot settled on its walls, but still much nicer to cook in sparkling clean dishes. We have offered you a couple of ways to restore the former brilliance to the cauldron, but perhaps there are other means in your arsenal. We will be grateful if you add to this text recipes known to you.
