Cleaning Iron Skillets can be a big headache for everyone. Although these Iron Skillets are pretty versatile and can help you to cook a wide range of food items, keeping them clean and seasoned is indeed a heavy task.
But there is a very surprising medicine for this headache: Potatoes.
You heard that right, potatoes is the ultimate weapon that you would need to keep your Iron skillet clean.
To clean: Take a potato and cut it in half. Take one-half in such a way that it fits into your palm. Sprinkle some salt onto the Iron skillet and place the flat side of the potato on the skillet. Scrub in a circular motion and once you feel that the pan is clean, you can rinse the pan with some water and pat dry.
The combination of the carb-filled potatoes and the salt gives a perfect cleaning solution to the equipment which, otherwise projects a problem.
Another easy hack that you could do with the Iron skillet is seasoning. You can do this by simply pouring some oil into the pan and spreading it with a paper towel. Heat the pan in a preheated oven for an hour and wipe off the excess amount of oil that is left.
