I love Pinterest, and I am sure you do too. There are always things I pin that I want to try, but never really find the time. I especially want to try the homemade cleaning supplies, and see if they are miraculous as claimed.
I decided to that if I force myself to write about the projects I will actually attempt them. So here is my first post about Pinterest Tuesdays, I will start by posting the first Tuesday of the month. I will only do it once a month at first to give me some time to try the project and write about it.
I saw this pin:
It said the “miracle of baking soda” and the blog it was linked to calls it a “Kitchen Miracle Cleaner” so I thought it would be perfect for my crockpot. After cooking some higher fatty roasts it gets a ring around it from where the top of the liquid was.
I added enough peroxide to the baking soda to make a paste. The mixture is watery at first but the baking soda will absorb it if you let it sit and thicken up.
Sodium hydroxide (a.k.a. lye) is a caustic soda (and is basic) and is commonly used as a detergent because it can dissolve fats, grease, oil and proteins. So it worked great on my yucky ring around my crockpot.
Can’t wait till I find something else to clean with this cleaning paste.
