HOW TO CLEAN A BLENDER
What You Need
We love how quickly our blenders allow us to whip up nutritious smoothies, zesty salad dressings, and smooth purees, but cleaning up the dirty blender aftermath seems like anything but quick and convenient. The small components and bulky carafe can be unwieldy, while the sharp blades can be tricky to maneuver around.
To avoid the need for frequent deep cleaning, you should thoroughly rinse your blender immediately after each use. Food particles and sticky liquids will be far easier to remove from your blender’s nooks and crannies if they don’t have the chance to dry on the surface before washing.
The often-recommended DIY options, such as rubbing alcohol or baking soda, may not be strong enough degreasers to carry away any stubborn, stuck-on food.
For lingering residue or to deodorize and deep clean, Simple Green All-Purpose Cleaner can help. The formula powers out grime, cuts through grease and oils, and removes stubborn stains without bleach. The scented formula deodorizes without leaving behind a residue that could be absorbed by whatever concoction you decide to blend up next.
If your blender is still under warranty, check your owner's manual for any precautions.
