  • White vinegar
  • Baking soda
  • Sponge
  • Steel wool
  • Gloves


Step 1

Place the pan on a flat surface upside down, then pour some baking soda all over the bottom of the pan which should be facing up, and then pour an ample amount of vinegar allowing it to fizz up. Once done bubbling, mix them together to combine, then leave the solution on the pan, and allow it to sit for a long time to let the mixture do its magic.

Step 2

After a few hours, start scrubbing the pan with a sponge and steel wool, then apply different pressure to see which one works best, and if the stain and burns are still persistent, repeat the application and scrubbing process until desired result. If this method doesn’t work and you’re open to trying purchasing online, then try using Easy Off or Bar Keeper’s Friend, and see if it works for you!
