I've had the same white-ish residue on my black crock pot insert as well. Will definitely try the vinegar. Thanks for posting!

No dishwasher, I just soak it real well, then wash with hot soapy water.

I never use vinegar for anything..... too harsh for my system, so never thought of using it for this purpose. Again, thanks to everyone who responded.....

Agreed. Vinegar is just about a miracle in and of itself. :)

Using vinegar in the rinse cycle of the dishwasher instead of the expensive additives will take care of the white residue. Also helps with spotting.

Are you using a dishwasher - I wonder if it is the rinse aid you need?

I am on such a limited income that I don't want to have to waste any of my food budget on buying liners that just end up in a landfill in the end. But I will certainly look for the scotch-Brite pads.

Thanks everyone, for your responses.

For the white residue, vinegar works best. I have to do it every so often (cause I wash mine in the dishwasher).

I let mine soak overnight in hot water and dishwasher powder.
In the morning it is just a quick wipe around and rinse.

I use the Scotch brand sponge scrubbers as well. You might think about buying crockpot liners so you don't have the problem.

I buy scrubber sponges that are safe for non-stick cooking pans and use those to scrub the liner of my crock pot. The brand I buy is Scotch Brite and the sponge and scrubber are blue, but there are probably other brands and/or generic versions that I'm just not aware of.

There was much rejoicing!

I use the scratch less Scotch pads with dish soap. Seems to work very well.

The ceramic insert (liner) of my crockpot is black but is developing a whitish tinge (from repeated use?). I clean it very well with soap and water but each time I use it, it developes more and more. I can scrub it clean with SOS pads, but I am afraid that will damage the ceramic finish.

So I am wondering how do you clean your crocks?
