How do I clean my dishes and utensils?
Sterilize before using. Wash in hot sudsy water. Soak plastic, glass, porcelain, and enamelware 10 minutes in a solution of one tablespoon liquid chlorine bleach to a gallon of hot water. Rinse well.
Do not use chlorine bleach on silverware, metal dishes, or chipped enamel. Instead, scrub and scour with hot sudsy water and scouring pad. Fill metal and boil-safe utensils with water or place them in water. Bring to or near a boil for 5 minutes.
Remove rust from cooking utensils with steel wool. After scouring and sterilizing, rub items with cooking oil. Heat at a low temperature in oven for about 30 minutes.
