You can remove yellowness from an enamel pot with simple and affordable home remedies. Here are some proven recipes:

Baking soda and vinegar

This is one of the most effective ways to remove yellowing from an enamel pot. To do this, mix baking soda and vinegar in a ratio of 1:3. Apply the resulting mixture to the yellowed areas of the pan or to the entire enamel surface. Leave for 1 hour or longer to achieve the best effect, then rinse the pan thoroughly.

Lemon juice and salt

This method is also quite effective. To do this, mix lemon juice and salt until a paste is obtained. Apply this paste to the yellow areas and leave it for half an hour to work, and then rinse the dishes thoroughly.

Citric acid

Citric acid also works well for removing yellowing from enamel pots. To do this, prepare a solution by diluting citric acid in water. Usually 1-2 tablespoons of powder per liter of water is enough. Apply the resulting solution to the yellow areas with a sponge or cloth and leave the dishes in the solution for half an hour or more so that the solution has time to affect the yellow spots. After soaking, rinse the dishes thoroughly with soapy water to remove any residual acid and any dissolved dirt.

Tips for removing yellowing from an enamel pot

  • Before using any of these methods, make sure that the enamel on your pan is not damaged. If there are cracks or chips in the enamel, these methods can make the pan worse.
  • Do not use abrasive materials, such as a hard sponge or metal brush, to clean enamel pots. They can damage the enamel.
  • After removing the yellowness, be sure to rinse the pan thoroughly to remove any residual detergent or other substances you used.
