Since this week is based on craft and misalliance, today I planned to post some useful cleaning tips. Even though this is food blog, I hope these tips will be more useful in our day today life.
I am going to share two tips, without using any chemicals, hope we all have these basic ingredients in our home. Yep it’s going to be lemon, baking soda and vinegar.
Here comes the first one, when we are using hard water for our cooking we can find a layer of salt (a white color) in the vessel as I shown in the picture. How to remove this?
Pour water in the vessel until it covers the layer and add ½ lemon peels or the outer skin which we trash after squeezing the juice, cover and boil the water for 10 minutes. If you feel it’s too thick add 1 tsp of vinegar and boil for another 5 minutes.
When using aluminum pressure cooker for steaming idli’s your cooker might be black after that you can follow the same process to clean or add quarter lemon pieces in water before steaming. Boiling the lemon without closing the lid helps to eliminate the odor also.
Next tip is about cleaning sliver things. As days go, silver will turn black when it’s exposed in air.
Wrap an aluminum foil inside any stainless steel vessel boil water in the same vessel, when water is boiling add 2 teaspoon of baking soda and turn off the stove add the silver things one by one and immerse in the water for couple minutes, remove and rinse in tap water, if its still black again repeat the process. Once it’s done, rinse in tap water and wipe with clean cloth.
