A Simple and Thrifty Non-Toxic Scrubbing Cleaner Recipe

I took a crockpot of chili to a get together. Of course on the way it spilled. Once I got to the party I plugged the crockpot in and that spillage cooked and baked on for hours! By the time I got home I really didn't want to deal with it so, I left it for the next day. Oh this was not going to be fun! I tried some dish soap and got a little off but, not too much. It was time to bring out the Jr. high science experiment! Two simple household ingredients. A non toxic cleaner that does the job of most scrubbing cleaners on the market.

Baked on chili. Not a fun thing to try to get cleaned! I tried scrubbing it with dish soap which took over surface gunk but, did little to get the baked in chili. And it's not like you can run this part of the crockpot through the dishwasher.

    I use lemon juice and baking soda. It does the same thing but smells way better! I clean my toaster oven with it. The last time I did it the kids had let the bread bag melt to the door and it even got that to come clean.

    How do you rinse the inside after you use this method? Can you run water in it to rinse residue out?

      I wiped it out with a wet rag and repeated until all was cleaned out. Didn't too long.


    all good questions - need more details please

    I thought you could not get the inside of the crock pot real wet.

      I didn't run water in it. I just spread the vinegar/baking paste and then wiped clean with wet rag.
