Do you have a Himalayan salt block but don’t know how to clean it? Or maybe you’re hesitating about buying one and you want to know if they’re easy to take care of? Today, let’s talk about how to clean a salt block.

How to Clean a Salt Block (in 5 Easy Steps)

What you need:

If you used your salt tile to cook, here’s what you need to do:

  1. Let it cool. You’ll have to wait around 2-3 hours for it to get back to room temperature.
  2. Dip your sponge in the water and wring it. The water will run on top of the salt block and moisten its charred and blackened top.
  3. Scrub away with the green side of the sponge. Or, you can use the steel wool to remove stubborn bits.
  4. Next, simply wipe all the gunk you’ve scrubbed off with the softer side of the sponge. Don’t forget to clean the sides as the juices from your food would have likely spilled over.
  5. Finish off with an absorbent rag or paper towel and air dry in a cool, dry place.
