2. Clean fingerprints off stainless steel & polish silver.

3. Stop mosquito bites from itching.

Cleaning the Bottom of Pots and Pans with Birch Hand Sanitiser

Sometimes the bottom of our pots and pans get covered in burns, stains and scorch marks that are tough and often almost impossible to remove.

I was tired of scrubbing the bottom of my pan every time I used it for it to continue to look grubby and old, I had tried so many internet tips and hacks to try and remove these marks, but with no luck!

One evening whilst using Birch Hand Sanitiser and seeing the 70+% alcohol I wondered, could this do the trick? So, I gave it a go!

 I took my favourite griddle pan and squirted a generous amount of Birch Hand Sanitiser all over the bottom area that used to be silver, and let it sit for around 45 minutes whilst I got on with my evening. When I came back to the pan, I gave it a scrub with a scouring pad using circular motions and the dirt started to lift with only a little elbow grease, I started to see the silver bottom which seemed to have been lost forever!

After a few minutes, I wiped away all the grime and burns, making sure to remove any sanitiser residue with warm soapy water once I had done, and voila, my pan looked almost like new!
