How to Keep Your Blender Clean and Sparkling


The essential kitchen tool is a blender; you need one to prepare anything from smoothies to hot soups and sauces. However, once you have prepared all your nutritious delights, you have the blender cleaning to look forward to. Appliances are often your biggest expense after the initial purchase of your home But keeping your appliances clean is essential to your health and your appliances health as well. Follow these tips below to keep your blender as brand new as the day you got it.

A Step-by-Step Guide to Cleaning Your Blender

1. Immediate Rinse

The blender must be rinsed immediately after using it. Add the first two tablespoons to the blender, fill the blender about halfway with warm water, record a drop of dish soap and whirl it at the highest speed for 60 seconds. Cover with lid and blend on low for 30 sec. This can help get the food particles that have been trapped in the blades and sides unattached.

2. Dismantle for Deep Cleaning

After you've washed it by hand, unplug the blender and remove all the parts. If you have a blender, you probably have a jar, a lid, and a blade assembly that fits in the bottom of the jar. More things need to be carefully dismantled for a proper cleaning.

3. Wash Each Part Separately

  • Jar and lid: Wash jar and lid in warm soapy water using a sponge or dishcloth. Keep in mind the areas around nooks and crannies where food may lurk.

  • Blades: these are sharp so be very careful with them. Grab a small brush, such as a toothbrush and scrub around the blades to loosen and lift any gunk.

  • Base: Clean the blender base and pour a little soap and water on the bottom of the blender, remove from the power source and use a sponge to remove dust. Just a little bit of soapy water and a sponge will be enough to remove the dust. Since the base houses electrical components, you should never submerge it in water.

4. Tackle Stubborn Stains and Odors

Use a mixture of water and baking soda paste for less marks and odor. Leave it on for a couple of minutes and scrub and rinse in the stained area. Mix water with white vinegar for any smells and rinse properly

5. Dry Completely Before Reassembly

Air dry everything completely after washing This helps keep the build-up of mold and mildew at bay. After the cleaning process is finished and your blades are dry, simply reassemble your blender and before you know it, it will be ready for your next delicious concoction.

Tips for Ongoing Maintenance

  • Everyday Cleaning: your blender will last and not get stained if you wash it dirty after each use.

  • Deep-Clean Everything: Once a month, do a deep clean. This involves disassembling the blade assembly and submerging in tap water together with soap.

  • Not Dishwasher Safe: Even though some of the components of the blender are dishwasher safe, it is advised to hand wash these things, so they last longer and not end up getting damaged.
