I recently shared this tip on Periscope but I thought it would be fun to share it on my blog too. Do you follow me on Periscope? If you don’t, you should, it’s a lot of fun getting to chat live with all of you! You can find me under “askannamoseley”. 🙂 Back to the tip. I honestly don’t even know how crock pots get dirty in the metal cooking area but today I’m going to share a tip that will get your crockpot looking brand new again.
I’m sure your crock pot has never been this dirty, but just in case it is, all you need to clean it is the Scotch-Brite Extreme Sponge. Get the sponge wet and scrub the drips on the crock pot.
Depending on how badly they are crusted on, will determine how much elbow grease you have to use, but most of them will come off easily. After getting off each big crusty section, take the sponge to the sink and rinse it. Keeping it clean will help the sponge work better.
Work your way around the crock pot until the whole thing is clean and sparkly again.
It took me about 8 minutes to scrub this crock pot until it looked brand new and some of the drips were really crusted on it. If you can get in the habit of cleaning this part of the crock pot after each use, then it should only take you a minute or two to clean it. 🙂
I will say, I’ve used LOTS of other sponges to try to clean a crock pot before but none of them have ever given me these results, this one worked like magic. I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again, having the right tools for each cleaning job makes a HUGE difference in the time and effort it takes to clean something. So if you love to use your crock pot go buy a pack of these sponges and keep them on hand for when your crock pot needs a good cleaning! I’ve also found that they clean the oven and the stovetop really easily too! Happy scrubbing! 🙂
