How To Effectively Clean a Cheesy Pot

Some of the best foods are also the hardest to clean up. Perhaps the most infamous in that regard is cheese—and melted cheese, at that. Melted cheese, when cooked in a pot with any form of pasta, can be one of the hardest things to clean up afterward. The cheese gets incredibly solid and hard to wash off of the pot, and it becomes a major chore to handle it. However, there’s an easy way to do it as long as you follow these steps.

Step 1: Fill The Pot With Hot Water and Soap

The first thing you need to do is add soap to the “cheesed up” pot, and then proceed to fill it up with boiling water. This will allow the cheese to soften, and for the soap to do its magic on its own. If you really want to do it right, you’ll wait at least a half hour.

Step 2: Wash It Yourself

Finally, take out your trusty sponge and go to town on that pot. The hot water and soap should have already done most of the work for you, but now it’s your job to close the deal. Get in every nook and cranny of your pot and make sure there are no leftover cheesy parts. And that’s it! Rinse the pot, allow it to dry and you’re good to go!
