Many housewives complain that dishwashing detergents are not always as effective as they would like them to be. Moreover, they can provoke allergies in the hands, which makes it difficult to wash the dishes. But it turns out that there is a cheap and proven tool that will help you clean dishes from stale grease.
How to get rid of stale grease on dishes
If you constantly wonder what to soak greasy dishes in, the answer is very simple – in a solution of baking soda. To do this, you will need 2-3 spoons of baking soda per liter of water. Put the dirty dishes in a large container and pour the heated solution over them. Leave it for about 30-40 minutes, and then use a sponge to rinse it under warm running water.
Interestingly, you can use baking soda to remove not only grease but also yellow stains on dishes.
How to clean dishes from plaque
Surely you have noticed on dishes not only yellow plaque associated with water hardness and poor quality detergent, but also from tea. Initially, it is recommended to try to clean the plaque with baking soda, but if you do not have enough shine, you can use other ways.
For example, salt, cola, and even alcohol can also clean the plaque.
Salt. You should dissolve two tablespoons of salt in two to three spoons of warm water. Pour this solution into cups with a yellow plaque and leave it for half an hour. Then rinse them thoroughly under running water.
Cola. Coke has been known to help in such cases. You should pour the soda to the brim and leave it overnight. At the same time, it is better not to use cola for white mugs, so as not to make it worse.
Alcohol. Another folk remedy that everyone is sure to have in his or her medicine cabinet is rubbing alcohol. Moisten a sponge with alcohol and vigorously rub the dishes in areas with plaque.
All these simple methods can help you easily get rid of grease and plaque not only on porcelain dishes but also on glass and metal.
