Steps to Clean The Juicer:
- Start with the juicer unplugging.
- Disassemble as much juicer as you can. If you're not sure how to disassemble your juicer, you can usually find the instruction book online by searching for your juicer brand or design.
- Dump the pulp bin or tub and clean it with a spatula.
- Rinse under running water each piece.
- Using small brushes to wash small areas like an old toothbrush or a nail brush. There are a few mini scrub brushes that can be found online and used to clean the nooks and crannies if they don't work. Another choice is to use dry rice or salt with some water; it can serve as a scrubber to suck it around. For better scrubbing strength, a little baking soda on a damp cloth often works well.
- Fill the sink with water and add platter soap for more thorough cleaning.
- For a few minutes, soak each piece and clean with a brush or soft cloth.
- Pay special attention to the mesh strainer because pulp and juice debris will quickly build up. Do not allow the juice particles in this fine screen to dry or they will require a lot of elbow grease and attention to cleaning information.
- Use a water-moistened soft cloth or towel to clean off the device itself. Even though the juice is built in the juicer to go through a certain path, juice and pulp end up everywhere.
- Allow the entire piece to dry. Putting them on a towel or drying rack is perfect.
- Gather the juicer.
- The next juicing session is set for you.
How to Clean a Juicer:
Using a drying rack set:
Right after juicing, washing out or soaking your juicer parts will help you remove all the remaining pulp and juice inside the juicer. Before you start juicing, put a drying rack or drying mat in place so that you can wash, rinse and dry your juicer immediately. If after juicing without washing, you leave the juicer for some time, the stain sticks inside, making cleaning twice more difficult.
Using vinegar and olive oil:
Unplug the juicer and divide the components. For a while, or ideally overnight, soak the juicer parts in the vinegar and water solution. Then put on a cloth some olive oil and wash it. Continue to clean until all the stain is gone. Yeah, that's the simple thing.
Clean your juicer filter by soaking it:
Get a hot water bowl and make it soapy. Soak your filter in it for about 10 minutes after the juicing has been done. If the pulp is left to dry, cleaning will require much more care. If the pores are still blocked, soak in warm water with a squeeze of lemon for a while longer. Finally, brush the filter with a clean little brush, rinse it and let it dry.
Cleaning your juicer from tough residue:
To remove any residual sticky residue from your juicer bits, you can use a debenture tablet or white vinegar. You can either soak the components in a mixture of debenture tablet or white vinegar and milk or place the mixture in a spray bottle and spray it on the components. The enzymes in the milk, like the acid in the vinegar, work to break down the juice residue.
Clean your juicer using saltwater:
You can also clean your juicer with salt water. Heat as much water as you need; just enough to soak the juicer's parts. For every quarter of the water, add a teaspoon of salt. Thoroughly stir it until the salt is dissolved. Then disassemble the juicer and soak the juicer parts in the saltwater so that the residue can be quickly scrubbed away and washed as long as necessary.
Clean your juicer using baking soda:
You can help remove colored stains and residual mineral deposits from your juicer by using baking soda to wash your juicer. Mix 16 ounces of lukewarm water with 4 tablespoons of baking soda. In this solution, disassemble the juicer and soak the juicer pieces overnight. Use soap and water to wash it. Wipe it out or dry it.
Clean plastic parts of the juicer:
To daily juice drinkers, cleaning juicer parts made from plastic is a common problem. Due to the strongly colorful natural and artificial colors in veggies and fruits, the plastic parts of the juicer may be discolored. After each use, you can avoid this problem by washing the parts. If discoloration appears on any part of a plastic juicer soak the 10% lemon juice part in water. With a non-abrasive cleaner, you can wash it. You can also soak parts of plastic overnight in vinegar.
Clean a clogged juicing screen:
To clean your clogged juicing screen, here what you need to do:
- Prepare a white vinegar or citric acid water solution.
- Soak in the solution the clogged juicing screen and leave for a while.
- Then use either a nail brush or an old toothbrush or a small brush to clean it. Rinse it and clean it.
Clean a Cuisinart juicer:
Unplug juicer–Be cautious during cleaning when handling the filter basket, as the blades at the bottom are very sharp. Please thoroughly clean the filter basket with the supplied nylon brush for the best juicing results. Rinse with cold water and remove the juice extractor. Then wash the other small parts of the juicer. Do not use a brush or pad of steel.
Finally, towel-dry all parts.
