If you cook rice too long, or forget to stir the pot as the rice cooks, you often get left with cooked-on residue that is hard to remove. You could try scrubbing down the pan with soapy water or even letting the pot soak in water, but often this is just not enough to remove all of the burned rice. Instead, use something that quickly breaks up the burnt residue and leaves the pot clean and residue-free.
Things You'll Need
- Nylon scrubbing pad
Fill the pot with equal parts water and white vinegar. Fill until the burned residue is submerged by about 3 inches of liquid.
Bring the water and vinegar mixture to a boil, and let it boil for 10 minutes.
Allow the liquid to cool slightly and scrub down the pot with a nylon scrubbing pad. Don't use a metal scouring pad, as this can scratch the pot.
Continue until you remove all residue. If any burned rice remains, pour vinegar into the pot and let it soak overnight.
Wash the pot with warm, soapy water after removing all of the burned residue.
