Remove Grease Stains From Teflon
What You Will Need Before You Start
- White vinegar
- Baking soda
- Liquid dish detergent
- Clean rags or kitchen towels
Grease stains can oftentimes be the worst to remove because they tend to just get clumped and goopier with most washes. The trick to remove stains from Teflon pans is to use heat, and lots of it. The first method that included boiling the pots and pans on the stove with a good cleaning solution is very effective, but there is another method that could just work for the grease stain that you are faced with.
- On the stove, heat up a cleaning solution of one cup of white vinegar, two teaspoons of baking soda, and half a teaspoon of liquid dish detergent.
- Once the cleaning solution has just reached the point of producing steam, place a rag or kitchen towel over the stain on your Teflon pan.
- Carefully pour the hot cleaning solution over the rag so that it absorbs the steaming liquid.
- Leave the rag in place until it has just started to cool down to the point of being easy to lift up.
- Remove the rag and observe the stain. The stain should have lifted up with the rag, without any scrubbing required on your part!
Wash the Teflon pan as per usual, drying it with a lint-free kitchen towel until needed again!
Remember that while baking soda is a mild abrasive, it is typically recommended that you do not use abrasive cleaning products on Teflon. When faced with the need to remove stains from Teflon pans, you should always use the least amount of scrubbing possible, and the gentlest of cleaning products so that you can not only restore the sheen to your Teflon pans, but so that you can also continue to enjoy using them for many good years to come.
