Christmas Day is the one day a year you can guarantee everybody wants to eat, drink and be merry! The one part of the day that everyone inevitably dreads is the clean up operation, as no one wants to spend time scrubbing the turkey tin! Simply putting it in the dishwasher or washing it without removing the oil could result in the greasy water cooling in the pipes, depositing the grease and trapping further residue – leading to a blocked sink or drain.
But help is at hand in the form of trusty Soda Crystals!
Simply sprinkle Soda Crystals into the turkey tin after use, if there is a lot of the carcass left. Leave to cool and then simply scrape away once the crystals have soaked up all the oil. Then wash as normal, either by hand or in the dishwasher.
If the pan is otherwise clean, you can add the Soda Crystals and some hot water. Leave to soak for about an hour, and then wash as normal, either with washing up liquid or in the dishwasher. The Soda Crystals will have dissolved most of the grease, making light work of the the washing up! Make sure you ensure plenty of hot water is sluiced down the drain. You could even add a further mugful of Soda Crystals and hat water to ensure there’s no danger of blockage.
Soda Crystals are also ideal for rescuing burnt on food in pans. When added with hot water and left to soak, the crystals will help loosen the carbonised debris.
Note: Soda Crystals are not suitable for use on aluminium.
