    blackened pot - how to clean

    So one of my flat mates used my pan and has basically destroyed it. Its a stainless steel pot and is now black, what reagents can resolve this issue?

    You can use Caustic Soda, but read the packet carefully and make sure you rinse the pan several times.

    Salt water solution over night depending on how bad it is.

    Half fill with water add some washing up liquid bring to the boil, take it off the heat leave to stand for ten minutes, pour away the water and scrub, it should come up as new

    Will work a lot better if you put a lid on it after taking it off the heat. Let the steam do all the work. Will come off a lot easier. No need to use any cleaning agents with steam

    cillit bang overnight and scrub with a brillo, made need to repeat but it works

    A scotchbrite pad and plenty of elbow grease.

    dont kim and aggie say coke works best

    Damp salt on a scourer and elbow grease

    You could try oven pride, that's the no scrubbing cleaner, does iglimpse have anything to added uo this suggestion

    Your housemates face?

    Bring some water to the boil, add some bicarbonate of soda so it fizzes. Remove from heat and leave to cool overnight. Give it a good scrub. You may have to repeat but this has always worked for me.

    +1 and not rola cola.lol

    Use cheap vingear, let it soak for half hour and then rinse.

    Put in hot water and biological detergent. Leave overnight - will rinse straight off in the morning.

    are you seriously asking how to clean stainless steel on the internet

    mental

    I wonder if your pan really is stainless steel?

    If you have already tried the obvious stuff you need to get brillo pads, Cif cream and give it some welly.

    Ok maybe not stainless steel but its metallic colour and isnt non stick.

    Probably aluminium then - much harder to clean.

    Brillo pads and cif is the way to go, or ... the bin!
