How to Clean a Burnt Pot
If your favourite pot seems to be on its charred last legs, you’ll want to give this hack a try. @AdrianaSpink posted this experimental trick on TikTok, and it worked so well, people couldn’t help but give it a whirl themselves. All you need to do is put some water and a dishwasher tablet into the pot, then bring the whole concoction to a boil.

What’s great about this hack is that it concentrates the dishwasher tablet’s full power on the pot instead of the rest of the dishes in the dishwasher. While Adriana doesn’t detail how long she boiled the tablet, our advice is to start at 10 minutes and boil for longer if you can’t get everything off the first time around.
