My name is Rachel Yatuzis and I'm going to show you how to make homemade aluminum cleaner. First off, you want to get a fourth of a cup of cream of tarter and then a fourth of a cup of vinegar, add another fourth of a cup of baking soda, and you want to use two tablespoons of soap flakes. Ivory soap flakes really well, so if you just cut a slice off, it pretty much flakes by itself. You combine the powdery substances of cream of tarter first, then add the vinegar, and the soap flakes, mix it altogether and it will form a paste, like this. You then want to get a sponge, and just work this into aluminum pan, aluminum pots and pans, anything that you have around the house that's aluminum and you need to clean it, this is what you want to use. You want to spread the paste all over the aluminum, let it sit for about twenty or thirty minutes, and then wipe it clean with a wet rag.
