Aluminium is light, sturdy and known to distribute heat evenly. This makes it an ideal choice for pots, pans, cookers and other kitchenware. We recommend you wash your aluminium kitchenware by hand. Avoid putting them in in the dishwasher, as it can lead to discolouration. Follow the steps below to have your aluminium utensils looking as good as new.

Ingredients to Keep Handy:
a) Large container
b) Hot water
d) Wooden spoon
e) Dishwashing liquid

Step 1: Use Hot Water
Take a container large enough to fit the aluminium utensil you wish to clean. Fill ½ of it with hot water and add a cup of vinegar. Place your aluminium utensil in it.
Step 2: Let it Soak
Bring the solution to a boil and leave your aluminium kitchenware in the hot water to soak for around 20 minutes.
Step 3: Remove the Grime
Next, take a wooden spoon and use it to dislodge grime. After being soaked in hot water, the dirt will loosen, and it will be a lot easier to clean.
Step 4: Rinse Under Warm Water
After scraping off the grime, rinse the utensil under warm water. This is done to remove any leftover grime stuck on it before washing.
Step 5: Wash Using Dishwashing Liquid
Take a few drops of dishwashing liquid on a sponge and scrub your aluminium utensil with it. You can try using Vim Dishwash Gel, which is easily available in the market, for this. Scrub your utensil thoroughly to ensure it is as clean as possible.
Step 6: Rinse Under Your Tap
Rinse your aluminium utensil under water to remove all the soap and dirt. The running water will make sure that no dirt or grime remain on your utensil.
Step 7: Dry
Use a kitchen towel to wipe your aluminium vessels dry.
There you go! Now that you know how to clean your aluminium utensils, you’ll find it easier to keep your cookware clean and spotless!
