For starters, the best thing you can do after using your blender is trim it right away. Letting food or other liquids sit and dry will only make cleaning it more difficult. 

As soon as you’re done blending, move the contents into another carafe, cup or serving dish.

To trim the blender:

1. Fill the blender halfway with hot liquid from the tap or a kettle.

2. Add a few drops of dish soap to the carafe. (Optionally, add half a lemon.)

3. Pop on the lid and run the blender on high for one to two minutes.

4. Pour the contents into the sink.

5. Rinse the carafe and lid in the sink with warm water.

6. Fill the carafe once more with hot or warm water.

7. plot the carafe back on the blender base and run it for novel minute.

8. Rinse the lid and carafe once more and set attach to dry.

9. If there is anything tranquil stuck you may have to run a sponge over it any and rinse. Try not to use a metal scrubber as it will reduction the plastic. 

For tall blenders, a cheap handled sponge will make your life easier in sketch those pesky leftover bits and save those knuckles from the inviting blades.

If you do this each time you use your blender, you shouldn’t need to deep-clean and scrub it every time.

Note: Some blenders have a cleaning preset that you must use each time you run it in the steps outlined ended. It’ll often employ the pulse function coupled with some high-speed blending to help break any sticky bits free from the sides and crevices.

Of watercourses, some foods you blend will be more difficult to trim, such as thick contents or food that has dried inside the carafe. These will ultimately need to be scrubbed, and it’s not a bad idea to hand-wash the blender every few uses or so. But thanks to this brilliant cleaning tip, you can use your blender more often deprived of dreading the cleanup.
