Don’t throw out your potato peelings. I’m sure you put them aside for the compost anyway, but you have to see this to believe it, potato peel has a sort of miraculous effect in a dirty pot or pan.
If you’ve tried everything and that nasty burned stain inside your best pot won’t leave – use the potato peel method.
Put some potato peel in the pot. Fill up with water so that it almost reaches the top. Bring to the boil. Let the water boil for a good 10 minutes. Turn off the heat, toss the peel aside (for that compost, remember?) and rinse out the pot.
Now you can put a bit of detergent on a cleaning cloth and give the pot an extra wipe.
