I used to hate using the blender, it was so hard to clean. One day after making a milkshake, I quickly rinsed it. Next I put some warm water and a squirt of dish washing liquid in it. Turned it on for several seconds, let it suds up, then just needed to rinse it out. It's so easy to get it cleaned that way, I no longer dislike using my blender.

I learned this trick in High School Home Ec. It's easy and works great for getting all the stuff that usually ends up dried on the inside of the blender. I do take the blender apart periodically to make sure the washer and all are really clean though.
I put mine in the dishwasher and also my foodprocessor. I have done this for years.
Good idea. I usually just take my blender apart to wash and make sure all the parts are ultra clean and it's so easy to do. ;-)
I used to do this too till one day after several months of cleaning it this way I decided to take it apart. After seeing all the gunk that was trapped inside where the bottom screws on, I decided it wasn't such a chore after all to take it apart each time! Besides it only takes a minute to take it apart and wash it, and to be sure it's cleaned thoroughly it's worth that minute to me.
To keep food particles from getting trapped in and around the buttons on my blender, I cover them with a plastic sandwich bag and secure it with transparent tape. When the bag gets worn out, I just throw it away and replace it with another.
How can I get carrot juice stains removed from my white blender lid?
I used olive oil on a paper towel to get the carrot stains off of my juicer. It works. THANKS!
I prepare in advance warm soapy water with bleach in full sink and as soon as am finished immediately dismantle food processor/juicer and soak all immerseable parts--carrot stain is instantly removed--when I waited awhile before soaking even 10-15 minutes, had to scrup vigoriously with old toothbrush to remove stain which was frustrating and time consuming.
Tried canola oil and that worked too! Thanx for this great tip.
I used veggie oil and the stain was removed INSTANTLY! Thanks
Fill your blender halfway with water, then add a drop of dish soap and 1 tablespoon baking soda. Replace the lid and blend.
Washing my blender used to be a dreaded task. Not any longer! Now, I squeeze a little dish soap and warm water in the blender and let it run until it's clean. Then rinse and let dry. By M. Day, Ohio
