My beloved crock pot has seen some better, cleaner days! I looked on Pinterest and found a lot of ways to clean the inside of the base. How does THAT get dirty???? I mean--really?? The crock sits in it, and goes over that edge, so how does it get dirty? I don't know, but it was dirty!
So, this is what I tried. I read that if you put a bowl of ammonia in the base, and put the lid on, that just the fumes would clean it. I wasn't really believing this, because I had tried that on an oven to no avail.
So, here is my crockpot at the start. Gross!!
So, I read that you put a bowl of ammonia inside the base, then put the lid on and leave it overnight. I actually left mine for 2 nights and then some!
This is the crockpot base after I wiped it out--just wiped it!
It's better, but not all clean.
