How To Spring Clean Your BlenderBlenders and food processors have enjoyed resurgence of late, mainly due to the popularity of ‘juicing’ and the uptake of fresh fruit and veg-based smoothies as part of New Year health regimes. If this is something you indulge in then you’ll know that the blending jar on your appliance is susceptible to residue build-up and can start to look dull after repeated uses. Whilst most components are dishwasher-safe and can be deep -cleaned every so often, this involves taking apart the blender or food processor, which can be fiddly and time consuming. Fear not though as we're about to show you in a few easy steps how you can freshen up your blender without dismantling it... Following the above steps should leave you with a sparkling clean blender jar free from fruit pith, soup smears, baby food and anything else you might have had in your appliance. We recommend using dishwasher liquid instead of washing-up liquid as it leaves polycarbonate blender jars with a streak-free shine. To keep your Tower blender in tip-top condition you should of course give it a thorough clean after prolonged usage, but as a quick-fix for busy juicers and smoothie addicts out there, we think this handy method does the trick.
