If you cook a lot, chances are your pots and pans show some wear and tear. Although they might have once been shiny and brand new, now they’re likely covered in stains and burns. You’ve probably given up on scrubbing the bottoms of your pans, thinking that they’ll never look as good as they used to.

But there is a new trick that could change your kitchen for good.

The YouTube page Abhishek Chaturvedi posted a video that demonstrates an amazing way to completely get rid of the stains and burns from your cookware. Read on to hear how it works.

This hack comes with a sprinkling of salt.

And a little bit more than that! Lay your pan down so that the bottom is up. Then, take a pinch of salt and sprinkle it over the bottom. After that, do the same with some baking soda.

Add a drizzle of dishwashing liquid.

The same stuff that you normally scrub onto your dishes.

Take your favorite brand of soap and make sure that the bottom of that pan gets a healthy coating of it. Then, take some steel wool and scrub the pan a little to make sure that the soap covers every inch of the surface.

But don’t wipe off the pan yet.

The next step is to cover the entire bottom of the pan with tissues. Take as many tissues as you need and lay them out so that the pan is entirely covered. This will all make sense soon.

After covering the pan with tissues, pour white vinegar over the tissues. You want all the tissues to be soaking wet. The vinegar will soak through the tissues and onto the pan.

Voila!

Make sure you’re prepared to see something that feels almost like magic.

After letting the vinegar soak into the pan, grab hold of the tissues and start wiping away the mixture. As you start clearing away the salt, baking powder, soap, and vinegar, you will see the stains lift off before your very eyes.

And you thought those stains were permanent!

This works because vinegar is a superhero as far as cleaning goes.

If you have a tricky stain or a sticky surface, chances are vinegar can help you.

According to Healthline, Acetic acid is one of the bases of vinegar, and the fact that it’s organic and strong enough to dissolve all sorts of minerals and greases makes it a great option for your household cleaning. It can even kill bacteria, making it a powerful disinfectant.

People are so excited about this new idea.

“It’s real.. I have tried this combination for cleaning steel gas stove, it’s worked every single time and in this video if you see the handle joint its still black or some dirt in it. Not so easy to clean those joints I believe.”

Someone else said:

“Its so satisfying to see the clean pan emerging from the soggy mess. Gotta try it once though I scrub my pans and pots every day without fail. This will be good for the bottoms that becomes greasy and dark over long use”
