Day 51-Tips and Tricks Week-How to Clean Your Crockpot (The Easy Way!)

Ok, I’m not going to necessarily make all the tips this week about cleaning, however, this one is a favorite of mine and after proving to myself it works, you should too!

No one likes to put a brand new meal in a stained, ugly crockpot. I know I don’t. I tried many methods to get that ring that wants to stay baked on off, but this is the one that works the best, very time!

I found this little gem on the website lifeshouldcostless.com, and pinned it to my Pinterest board a long time ago. She has a video tutorial that makes it easy to follow, but I thought I’d just cover the steps here-it’s easy peasy! I’m not trying to copy anyone, I just know not everyone has Pinterest, so I wanted to share the best tips from around the web to help you all save time and money.

Ok- Step 1

Fill the crockpot with water to just above the ring of crud

Step 2

Add one cup of white vinegar for a 6 qt cooker, or 1/2 cup for a 3 qt

Step 3

Slowly add a cup of baking soda a spoonful or so at a time-wait until the bubbles die down between each spoonful

Step 4

Cover and turn your crockpot on to low for 4 hours

Step 5

Let the crockpot cool down and wash normally with soapy water.

Thats it! The ring will be totally gone and your crockpot will shine like new!

I hope you enjoyed this tip, feel free to check it out on my Pinterest board for the full tutorial with pics or go straight to the website I mentioned above. Thank you to Sarah for the awesome tip.

Feel free to comment below or ask a question and please keep those content comments coming in. I’ll be checking to see what everyone has voted for. I appreciate all the advice so far. I hope everyone has a lovely day, I’ll see you tomorrow when I share another cool tip to help with the coming cold weather (eventually :))!

See y’all then, I’ve got to go clean up my patio!
