This age-old cleaning recipe will help you remove years of grease, dust, and grime from your cast-iron skillet.
For this cleaning solution, you will need:
- 1 cup baking soda
- 5 quarts water
- 1/4 cup powdered mustard
- 1/2 cup glue (office or silicate glue – your choice)
Transforming a dirty skillet into a sparkling beauty involves the following steps:
Start by preparing a large volume of water (5 quarts). You can use any suitable container like a bucket, pot, or basin. Bring the water to a boil.
Once the water is boiling, add 1 cup of baking soda and stir well to help it dissolve quickly.
Next, add 1/4 cup of glue to the solution and mix it thoroughly.
Follow up by sprinkling 1/4 cup of powdered mustard into the mixture. Stir everything together until well combined. Your miraculous cleaning solution is ready.
Without removing the solution from the stove, carefully submerge the skillet into the mixture, ensuring that it is completely covered. Let the skillet simmer in the solution for 1-1.5 hours.
After the time has passed, remove the skillet from the solution and allow it to cool down until it reaches a temperature where it can be handled comfortably (it should not be cold).
Use a knife blade to scrape off the built-up grime from the surface of the skillet. It should come off easily.
Subsequently, boil the skillet in the solution for an additional 20 minutes.
Repeat step 6. Use an iron sponge to remove any remaining residue.
Rinse the skillet thoroughly under running water and dry it.
The transformation of your dirty skillet into a sparkling beauty should leave you amazed!
