Use a stiff artist paint brush (for oil paint) to clean out stubborn crumbs in your toaster's innards.
By Nancy from Madison, WI
If your toaster is reluctant to accept the toast it's probably because crumbs have built up to point that the bread can no longer be pushed down all the way. Most toasters have a handy trap door on the bottom that allows you to remove any crumbs that have built up. First unplug the toaster.

How do you clean buttered crumbs and jelly crumbs from inside your toaster? Can you use electrical spray cleaner? Will that break down the jelly and butter crumbs so they will fall in the crumb try? Will the spray cleaner cause any damage?
My toaster has a little door on the bottom to open and clean it out. I'd think that if you were just blowing a compressed air spray into the toaster, it'd be messy but okay. I wouldn't spray anything else in there.
I agree, use the compressed air. But next time don't let anything like that in your toaster (unless it is a toaster oven) The hot oils can start a fire!
Why in the world would you butter or put jelly on the bread BEFORE you toast it????
I hope you're talking about a toaster oven, not a pop up- never heard of butter and jam in one of those before!
Yes I do not know why there would be jelly and butter in your toaster!
LOL... if you have kids 'Anything' is possible (m&ms's in the VCR) ;)
I use a toothbrush to scrape off crumbs and food on my heating elements. I have an air compressor but canned air will work just as good. I try to clean all my elec. appliances once a month, inside and out.
