Grease stains on pans can be difficult to remove. When hot, greasy food is on the pan, it can be scraped away with a plastic spatula. However, if that grease is allowed to sit on the pan until it cools, you might be left with a grease stain. Next time, save yourself the hassle by not allowing the grease to sit in the pan. But for now, there is a method to remove the grease stain on your pan.
Things You'll Need
- White vinegar
- Paper towels
- Dish-washing liquid
- Nylon scrubber
Place your pan over the burner and turn on medium heat. Pour several cups of water in the pan to cover all of the grease stains.
Pour ½ cup of plain white vinegar in with the water. As the water heats, some of the grease should come off, especially if it's a non-stick pan. For other types of pans, such as cast iron, stainless steel, or enamel, this will probably only remove the top layer of grease and not the stain itself. Allow the water and vinegar mixture in the pan to boil. Remove from heat and scrape away some of the loosened grease with a wad of paper towels.
Fill the pan again with warm water and mix in a tablespoon of salt. Let the salt water soak overnight. When you wake up, put the pan over the burner with the salt water still in it and bring the water to boil. The remaining stains will come off the pan during the boiling process.
Place the pan into a sink full of warm water and several drops of dish-washing liquid. Clean the pan with a non-abrasive nylon scrubber and rinse with plain water.
