Oh, the cleanup

Here we go, guys. The Cleanup. We had our fun,  now to pay the price.

cleaning up the  mess

I know people who use lots of paper towels and wipe out the pot. I can’t justify using paper towels for that. I pile spoons and other tools in the pot, pour in a large quantity, like a cup, of vinegar, and fill it the rest of the way with water. Vinegar cuts grease, but also neutralizes the lye.

I let it sit an hour or so, then wash them by hand in Dawn dishwashing liquid.

If you are lucky enough to have a dishwasher, just put it all into the dishwasher. Be careful of the thermometer, depending on what you have, it can go through the grid in the basket and hold up the operation of the dishwasher. Fill the soap reservoir with vinegar, and turn on the machine.
