Blenders are a marvellous kitchen gadget, but can be a little perilous to clean with their sharp blades and awkward corners. Not any more:all you need is this one, simple cleaning trick…

All you need to do is add a little water (just enough to cover the blades), a teaspoon of bicarb, and a squirt of your dishwashing liquid.

Now cover the jug and run a few pulses. Don’t overdo it, as you don’t want a cascade of froth to clean up! This mix will scour the blades clean and remove any grime caught up on the blades safely.

Now all you need to do is rinse it well in warm water, or pop it in the dishwasher. It will come out sparkling like new!

It’s important to keep your blender clean, as they can otherwise harbour gunk and grime that breeds bacteria. With this simple trick up your sleeve, it couldn’t be easier to make sure your blender is hygienic and ready to use at all times.
