Did you know, we rarely clean our blenders? Sure, we always rinse them right after we blend… yet cleaning them isn’t always necessary.
A simple rinse keeps them pretty clean throughout the week. Yet sometimes they do need some extra love—soap is a good way to do that. And that’s when we let the blender do the cleaning (just like in the video below).
3 Simple steps to clean you blender
If you’ve been wondering how to clean blender without too much work, I’ve got the solution for you. Here’s three quick steps that I do at least once a week to keep my awesome blender looking new.
Step 1: Add Soap + Hot Water
Fill up your blender about ½ way with warm water and a quick squirt of liquid soap.
Step 2: Blend
Put your lid on the blender (don’t forget to do this!) and place onto base. Turn your machine on and let ‘er rip for a few seconds and watch the magic happen.
Step 3: Rinse
Rinse the soapy, foamy water after you’re done blending so you can see your pitcher sparkle (and avoid that extra “clean” taste next time you blend)!
FOGGY FILM? DEEP CLEAN TIME!
Does your blender need some extra elbow grease to make her shine again?
If you notice a foggy film appearing on your blender pitcher (this can happen on most plastic blenders), simply give it a gentle scrub with a sponge, warm water, and a dab of baking soda. It should clear up in no time!
How do you keep your blender sparkling?
There’s so many way to clean your blender. I’d love to hear how you do it (and how often!).
