There are many things that we may need to do on a daily basis. Some of them may be almost automatic but others may be somewhat tedious, to say the least. One of the tasks that many of us find ourselves doing every day is washing dishes. It is necessary to do so to keep the dishes from building up but it can be a frustrating and sometimes annoying process.
One of the problems many of us face when it comes to washing dishes is that food may get caked on them quite quickly. Perhaps we didn’t wash them as soon as we should or may be that we just have something difficult, such as sauce or perhaps egg yolk that just steams to stick to the plate like glue. It makes a process that we may already find annoying to be practically unbearable. Fortunately, that is not going to be the case of any longer.
If you find yourself sometimes struggling to get difficult dishes pots/pans clean, you will love this easy recipe. It makes little balls of magic that are simply dropped into the water and before you know it, you can wash the stuck on food away as if it were never stuck in the first place. The magic is really in the combination of ingredients, which include baking soda, dish soap and citric acid. It makes a very powerful tool that can get you in and out of the kitchen in no time flat.
Unfortunately, these little gems are not going to wash the dishes for you but they can make your life a lot easier. The next time you have a pan with something stuck like glue inside of it, simply grab one of these little balls, toss it in the water and watch the food wash away like magic.
1 cup baking soda
1/2 cup salt
1/2 cup citric acid
small mixing bowl
2 tablespoons dish soap
Measure and add the baking soda, salt, and citric acid to the mixing bowl.
Drizzle in the dish soap and gently stir the mixture together. Fill a spray bottle with water and give the mixture a few spritzes of water.
Gather around 1 tablespoon of the mixture together in your hand and roll or squeeze into a round. Place on a flat surface and continue rolling. Let set overnight until the fizzies harden.
Once dry, place in a cute container next to your sink and toss into water-filled pots – or even into a filled sink – and let the fizzies do their job.
