A clean and well-maintained kitchen is not just about spotless walls and space management. Keeping your kitchen appliances is another important aspect for the same. Right after cooktop, mixer- grinder is perhaps the most used kitchen appliance. With daily use, there are fair chances that it might get dirty and smelly. Here are 5 ingredients that you can use to keep your mixer-grinder spotlessly clean.
Vinegar has some percentage of acetic acid which helps rub off stains. Coffee, curry or any other types of stains, vinegar can make those disappear within seconds. Just mix two tablespoon vinegar in a mug of water and pour this solution into the mixer and grinder. Switch on the grinder so that the solution gets properly circulated inside both the components. Doing this step twice for 20 seconds should be enough to get rid of stains. In case, the stain persists, repeat the process again with less amount of water.
2) Lemon Peel:
Wait! Don’t throw that lemon peel in the dust-bin. It can be used an all-natural stink-remover. Rub the peel outside and inside the mixer, grinder and juicer and their respective lids. Wash it after 15-20 minutes. This helps remove pungent smell which may have resulted due to leaving the three components unwashed for a long time.
Isopropyl alcohol is a disinfectant which not only dries quickly, but also does not cause any damage to plastic or metal surfaces. Further, it does not leave any marks on the surface once it gets dry. Mix water and alcohol in the proportion of ¾ and ¼. Sprinkle this solution all over your appliance and leave it for 10 minutes. And voila! You have a clean, odorless and shining mixer-grinder once again.
4) Baking Powder:
Make a thick paste by adding water to baking powder. Be careful about the quantity of water as adding too much water will make the paste too watery and result in sloppiness during its application on the appliance. Once you have applied the paste evenly on the appliance, leave it for 15-20 minutes. Wash it with luke-warm water. This will remove the odor and also make your appliance free of dirt and grime.
5) Dish washing solution
Add 3-4 drops of dish washing solution into a mug of water. Pour this solution in the mixer-grinder and switch on the appliance to let the solution swirl inside. Repeat twice and then rinse the twice. Ensure that there’s no residue of the solution as the chemicals in it might contaminate your food, the next time you will use the mixer, grinder and juicer.
