The hubbinator and I have been together 33 years. Imagine my surprise when he said he couldn’t clean a greasy pot.
So here it is in all its glory. How to clean a greasy pot (FYI this does not apply to a cast iron pot). This is the remains after cooking some bacon:
Scoop out the grease and dump it in the garbage. Not down the sink. Grease and sinks don’t mix.
Get as much out as possible and it should look like the picture above. Then add soap (no water) directly to the pot. Using a wet greenie (this is the scrubby thing) soap up the dish and clean it. The soap will do most of the work if you don’t add water to the pan.
Then rinse with hot water (the hot water is more for the drain-grease and sinks don’t mix, but soap makes it go down easier).
Dry and put away.
Et voila. It is done.
Until next time.
