‎3 ways to clean a blender with cupboard ingredients‎

If you love purées, soups and smoothies, you might be using your blender nearly every day. But ‎cleaning it may not be the most enjoyable task to do. Yet the following cleaning methods are so ‎easy, they only require cupboard ingredients and the correct technique.‎

Auto cleaning

Keep the blender plugged in. Combine 1 cup of water with 1 tsp of baking soda and 1 tbsp ‎of dish soap. Start the blender on high speed until the jug is perfectly cleaned then rinse and ‎air dry. If you own a high speed blender such as Ultrablend +, fill it with plain water and use ‎the auto clean function. ‎

With a toothbrush

Detach the jug from your blender base. Combine few drops of dish soap and baking soda ‎then run some warm water over them until you get a foamy mixture. Pour out the water and ‎scrub stubborn stains with a rough toothbrush until they disappear. Rinse one more time and ‎air-dry.‎

Soaking and manual cleaning

Unplug your blender. Combine 1 cup of vinegar with ½ cup of baking soda and few drops of ‎liquid dish soap. Let the mixture get foamy to the top and subside. Soak the jug for few ‎hours or overnight then rinse it until it’s clean. Air dry then store.‎

Extra note

Never submerge the motor base in water. Instead, use a damp cloth to wipe off any spilled ‎food stains. Happy blending!‎
