Did you forget about this month’s cleaning task? I almost did. I have made some progress, though.
My new KitchenAid Mixer didn’t need any cleaning, but I cleaned the old one thoroughly before taking it to my parents’ house. I was surprised at how dirty it was when I pulled it out from its corner and took a really close look at it.
I’ve also cleaned my food processor, electric tea pot, and Magic Bullet. I find there are always grooves or nooks and crannies where dirt becomes lodged, as you can see here:
I find that a toothpick, old toothbrush, and a vegetable brush with an angled head are useful tools for such dirt, and vinegar was a good cleaning aid for the inside of my electric tea pot.
Still to clean: Two toasters (one gluten-free and one not), slow cooker, blender, and hand mixer. The last two are not used a lot and won’t be hard to clean.
