best way to clean stainless steel pots at the campsite after cooking

3 Replies

Besides an eco-friendly camping toothpaste and body cleanser, baking soda makes a great stainless steel cleaner because it is abrasive enough to scrub away light hard water deposits and stuck-on grease and food, but not so abrasive as to scratch shiny stainless steel fixtures like faucets. 


You can use Dr. Bronner's Castile soap to wash pots, dishes, hair, skin, teeth and hand washable laundry. Its super eco friendly,just put it in a little squeeze bottle.


No help here, because all I do is boil water, leaving no pots to clean.
