Are you in love with your blender but are sick of taking it apart and cleaning it every time you use it? The Kitchn has the scoop on easily cleaning your blender:

I filled the blender halfway with warm water, a drop of dishwashing liquid, and a coarsely chopped lemon and ran the machine for about a minute. Voila! – my blender was sparkling again. One could also use white vinegar to cut through the scum, but I think a lemon smells better.

We’d assume that you’d still have to take your blender apart and clean it that way once in a while, but this could be a great time-saving hack if you’re a frequent blender user!
