Clean blender


The blender is our favorite kitchen appliance, but what we don't like is cleaning it. The fear that our fingers will suffer the same fate as the fruit and vegetables that we blend into a delicious smoothie in the morning makes the job a bit more difficult.

That's why we started looking for the best way to quickly clean our beloved blender. Mission accomplished, because with this handy tip you can now clean your blender in no time.

Clean your blender quickly

The goal, of course, is to keep as much of all the goodies in the blender jar as possible. So always make sure that you keep the jug tightly closed while blending, but if you have spilled anything on the motor unit, you can wipe it with a damp cloth.

Although some parts of the appliance, such as the blender jar and lid, may be dishwasher safe - check the manual - it is better not to do this too often. Dishwashing detergents are quite aggressive and this will certainly affect the performance of the appliance in the long term, especially the sharpness of the knives. That is why it is much better to clean the blender with a drop of regular dishwashing liquid.

The tip for quickly cleaning your blender

Fill the blender jar three quarters full with hot water and add a good drop of dishwashing liquid. Then switch the device on briefly. The rapidly rotating blades will form a mini vortex that will almost magically clean the blender jar. Pour the washing-up water from the jug and rinse away the last soap residues with running water and dry the knives immediately after cleaning to prevent rust formation.

Had an intense blending session and is the blender still not completely clean after the aforementioned tornado method? Then a little vinegar with baking soda and water provides the solution. Blend these three ingredients and then let it sit overnight to soak. Then clean the blender again with a drop of dishwashing liquid and this job can also be crossed off your to-do list.

After cleaning the blender, dry it thoroughly, both inside and out. If necessary, you can leave the blender upside down on a tea towel for a while. It is best to store the blender without a lid on the jar. This way you ensure that the blender cannot start to smell.
