Baking soda warning: The FIVE surfaces to avoid with baking soda – 'ruined'

0


Aluminium

Aluminium pans are handy, lightweight and seen in kitchens around the world.

However, one Reddit user cautioned their use of baking soda on a dirty pan “ruined it”.

Explaining they used baking soda in a dirty pan they wrote: “The baking soda water sat in the cookware all night.

“Today I rinsed it out and the entire bottom is now *not scorched* but feels like it’s been etched everywhere the water was.”

This is because baking soda reacts with the aluminium and can cause your pots and pans to discolour – a process called oxidation.

Instead, use dish soap, warm water, and the rough side of a sponge to remove any remaining discolouration – but avoid any wire wool scrubbers which may scratch.
