TGIFF!! Thank goodness it’s Frugal Friday! :):)
Not only is it Frugal Friday, but it’s President’s Day Weekend and Valentine’s Day all wrapped up in one! Woohoo!
Today, I’m sharing a way to clean your copper-bottom pots that is so inexpensive and easy that you’ll have plenty of money and time left to spend on and with your Valentine. ❤ In fact, I’ll bet you already have the ingredients sitting right there in your kitchen cabinet.
Two ingredients. Really. Two ingredients!
VINEGAR & SALT
I love this! Both ingredients are safe to use, inexpensive and most of us have them on hand all the time.
Now, that you have the long (hahaha) list of ingredients, I should explain the detailed process you need to follow to clean your pots…
- Find a shallow baking dish/pan or container that will fit the bottom of your pot.
- Pour enough vinegar in the dish so that it will cover the copper portion of your pots.
- Stir in a generous amount of salt.
- Place your pots, one at a time in the dish and let soak for a short time (for difficult pots, soak longer or sprinkle with salt directly, pour some vinegar over and scrub gently).
- Rinse with water and dry immediately (staying damp is what helps them tarnish in the first place).
- Enjoy using your “new” pots!
Really difficult, huh? Lol!
I found this a while back on Pinterest and I loved the results just as much as the results from my previous cleaner.
Have a safe and wonderful holiday weekend!! ❤
