Do you have aluminum pots or pans? I know how much I love mine and I use them very often which is why I had to learn how to properly clean them so they can last me a long time. Of course, I am going to share exactly how I do it – and the best part is that you only need natural ingredients!

How to Clean Your Aluminum Pots and Pans?

First thing you need to do is… wash it with hot soapy water. There is nothing difficult or challenging about this part – just grab a sponge and start cleaning.

If there is burnt food that is stubborn on your pot or pan, it’s time to pour some water in there then place the pot or pan on the stove and start boiling the water. Next, grab a wooden spatula and scrape as much of the burnt food as possible. Repeat this step a few times until the burnt food is removed.

And then I highly recommend you grab vinegar so you can deal with the oxidation. Fill the pot or pan with water then add a few tablespoons of vinegar and, again, place it on your stove and boil the mixture. If you don’t have vinegar or you hate the smell of it, you can also use lemon juice since it’s just as acidic. Turn the stove off once the water has started to boil and let it sit for 15 minutes before you throw the mixture away.

And then you are done with the cleaning. Just rinse the pot or pan with hot water and dry with a cloth or a towel… and that’s it!
