Natural Pot Scouring Solutions You Need to Try!

 

If you’re like most of us "Oh new pots", how awesome they look, shiny, sparkling sets of kitchen treasure. Don’t you just wish that they’d remain like that forever! Yet they do not. We have to maintain them to keep them in optimum condition.

There are so many options available for making your pots great again (no pun intended). In this post we’ll outline some natural options that are available. They are also cheap and eco-friendly!

 

Sandpaper Leaves

 

Biologically known as Ficus exasperata, This plant has leaves that are coarse in nature, just like sandpaper, hence the name. They are a widely-occurring shrubs growing all year long. You may have seen it around!

How to Use: Pluck off some leaves, add a few drops of your liquid dish soap and scrub pots until clean. Wash off with your dish sponge, rinse and voila! 3-5 leaves would be enough to clean a medium-sized pot thoroughly.

 

Powdered Egg Shell

Throwback to high school when this was a Home Economics project. Its easy and very effective. Gather and sun-dry egg shells. Using any preferred tool, ground them to powder, then use as a scouring powder!

 

Ash

You’d have seen grandma using this one. It’s very simple to use. Just take some ash, either from firewood or coal, place on dish sponge and scrub away!

 

Mildly Coarse Sand

Sand as a pot scouring agent is used the same way as ash and powdered egg shell. Be sure to pick out any large stone particles.

Others include baking soda, lime, salt and vinegar. Go ahead and try any of these simple, cheap and eco-friendly cleaning agents!
