Slow cookers are magical cooking devices , but scouring away all that baked-on food? Not so much fun. But thanks to a genius cleaning trick from Life Should Cost Less, your scrubbing days are over.
To pull off this hack, you need three ingredients, all of which you already have in your kitchen. Start off by filling the cooker—which should be turned off—with water, then add distilled white vinegar. Finally, sprinkle in some baking soda.
Turn your slow cooker on low heat and let the miracle mixture work its magic. After about four hours, turn off the slow cooker and let it cool for another hour. After that, pour the water mixture out and scrub. In no time at all, all that caked-on food will come right off, and you’re left with a slow cooker that looks like new. Presto!
