Let's agree- enjoying a hot cup of tea is one of the simplest pleasures in life. And, during winters, you can multiply it by 10 folds. Making a cup of tea is probably the easiest task in the kitchen, but you need to be accurate with the quantity of ingredients. Above all, it should also be perfectly strained. And, most of the time, you must have noticed that the tea strainers are getting clogged. Despite regular washing, some dust particles of tea tend to stick in the sieve. And, you end up discarding the strainer. Relatable, right? Here comes the solution. We have an easy peasy trick for you. All thanks to MasterChef Pankaj Bhadouria. She took to Instagram to share a hassle-free hack to clean the tea strainers.
“Pankaj Ke Nuskhe: How to clean a Tea Strainer. If your tea strainer has deposits that refuse to clean with soap and water, don't throw it away! Use this Nuskha (tip) to get it clean, totally clean and deposit free,” she captioned the post on Instagram.
As per Chef Pankaj, first, turn on the burner, and directly place the tea strainer on top of it until it turns red. She said that with this process, all the deposits will get burnt and turn into carbon. Leave it to cool down. Once done, scrub it with regular soap and water. And, your tea strainer is clean and super hygienic.
