This is one of those cleaning hacks where you scratch your head and wonder why you didn't think of it in the first place.
Cleaning blenders the old-fashioned way with the scrub brush, hot water and dish soap is a one of the more frustrating dish tasks, between squeezing those bristles beneath the blades, scrubbing to get those stains off the sides and don't even get us started with all that rinsing.
Well, say goodbye to that waste of time and welcome the new and improved way to wash that blender — or shall we say, the way to make your blender wash itself.
Step 1: Fill the blender halfway with warm water and a few drops of dish soap.
Step 2: Put the blender on its base and turn it on for 30 seconds.
Step 3: Dump the contents out, give it one quick rinse and be done!
