If your crockpot doesn't have the removable inside, how do you clean it?

My Mamaw gave me an old one she had, I mean old! I'm pretty sure they stopped making that green color back in the 80's. :-)
But, it works and does what I need it to do. :-)
Just not sure how to clean it. I'm used to the kind that's in two pieces where you take out the inside part and just toss it in the dishwasher or sink to wash it. I can't submerge this one because of the plug. Do I just wipe it down with soapy water while it's on the counter then rinse with a clean rag or something? Any tips are appreciated!
Thanks in advance!! :-)

  • I used to have one of those!! I'd fill it with water once cool and let it soak awhile. Then I would lay it on it's side and wash it out with a soapy dishcloth , rinse, and wipe dry.

  • I have my grandmothers crock pot too...I only use it to make her recipes in :) But what I do is make up dish water in the sink, use a cup to pour it in it, wash it with a rag, and then rinse it the same way.

  • I have bought the disposable liners for crockpots, they are really neat. You make your meal in it and then once everything is cooked and supper is done you just toss the bag and voila, its still clean.
