How do you clean a Himalayan salt block after cooking?

Once you’re done cooking, immediately remove the cooking surface from the heat. Gently rinse it with warm water and a soft sponge or cloth to clean cooking residue; do not use soap, detergent, abrasive scouring pads, or steel wool as these will scratch and damage the cooking surface. Dry thoroughly with a towel.

If you have cooked fish on your salt block you can use a cooking brush to gently scrub away any residue.

Salt cooking surfaces are delicate and will crumble if dropped or knocked, so handle with care. It’s best not to overheat the cooking surface as this may cause it to crack. And do not store your salt cooking surfaces in the refrigerator or freezer; they are not designed for freezing temperatures.

Do not wash cooking surfaces in the dishwasher or soak them in water for extended periods of time as this may cause moisture damage to the cooking surface.

You should also avoid cooking acidic foods, such as citrus fruits and tomatoes, on cooking surfaces for extended periods of time as this will cause the cooking surface to corrode and deteriorate.

The cooking residue may be cleaned off a cooking surface in two ways: either by scraping it away or scrubbing it off with a wire brush.

Scraping cooking residue off a cooking surface is best done with a metal spatula or spoon, not an abrasive one like steel wool. To scrape cooking residue away from the cooking surface you should use two hands: one to hold the cooking surface steady at its sides and another to guide your scraping tool along the cooking surface in order to prevent it from slipping out of your hand and scratching the cooking surface.

To scrub the cooking residue away from the cooking surface you should use two hands: one to hold the cooking surface steady at its sides, while another hand guides your tool along the cooking surface in order to prevent it from slipping out of your hand and scratching the cooking surface.

Once you have cleaned cooking surfaces with warm water, dry them thoroughly with a towel before storing or cooking on them again. If possible, set cooking surfaces in front of an open window so they can air dry before cooking again.

Once cooking surfaces are completely dry, they can be stored in any cool, dark place that is not too humid or moist. Some cooking surfaces may also benefit from being wrapped loosely in paper towels and then placed inside a plastic baggie with an airtight seal before they are stored in order to reduce the cooking surface’s exposure to air and moisture.
