Have I mentioned that I love my crock pot? I should give her a name, but I wouldn’t want to upset Nancy, my GPS. I figured since I use my crock pot a lot, I should confess that my favorite slow cooker gets stained. Especially when I prepare beans,cooking for 8-10 hours.
So how do you get those nasty stains out of your crock?
All you need is a little warm water, a few teaspoons of bleach, and a pair of rubber gloves. And a little muscle. They key to using the bleach is to allow the solution to sit for a couple of hours, for allow the bleach to do its work.
Mix 2 tsps of bleach in 2 cups of warm water, or use more if the stains are higher up in the crock. Let the solution sit for a couple of hours before you don your gloves. Give the crock a light scrub. If the stains remain, repeat the process, but warm the crock on low while soaking. Make sure you don’t cook the bleach.
