When the pan is full of fat and no matter how hard we try to remove it we cannot, let’s see this trick:

First, we put 1 teaspoon of detergent and spread it over the fat in the pan, we must avoid having water, only the detergent on top.
Then, on top of the detergent, we sprinkle a layer of fine salt, thus covering the entire surface.
After a few minutes, we wipe it with a dry sponge, removing all the grease and dirt without much effort.

2.- Baking Soda Paste

Another great ally of deep cleaning is undoubtedly sodium bicarbonate, very powerful to clean burned or stained pots and pans:

We start by turning on the burner and heat the pan and the pot to loosen the fat with the heat.
After a few seconds, we turn off the heat and carefully apply a little toilet soap to the hot area of ​​the pan.
Next, we scrub hard using a steel sponge. We can repeat this method as many times as necessary, little by little we will observe that the fat is eliminated and it remains as new.

Vinegar and water

First, we pour 1 cup of water into the burned pan and add 4 tbsp of vinegar to it. The reason for using vinegar is because it contains acetic acid which will immediately cut through all the oil and fat adhering to the pan.
Next, we light the fire and bring the mixture to a boil. We will observe that as the mixture boils, all the stains will loosen from the walls of the pan and will come out easily.
