How do you clean your juicer??

FAQ

Posted by LantanaLouisecom on 5 years ago Hi everyone. Each time I use my juicer I clean it in hot soapy water, but recently it has started to smell really bad. No matter how much I clean it the smell won't go away, it's even attracting fruit flies. Does anyone have any cleaning tips or know if I could soak the juicer in anything to get rid of the smell?

    What kind of juicer do you have? There may be different methods based on the juicer that you are using. You can try typing in the model name and how to clean in google and see what comes up. Also read the manual again to see if you missed something. http://video.about.com/housewares/Clean-and-Maintain-a-Juicer.htm This video demonstrates the the juicer that I have so thanks for asking this question -- I learned how to properly clean my Breville. I was surprised that the demonstrator wasn't using a bag in the pulp container to eliminate clean up -- that's one less item to clean for me. I immediately thought about a small amount of bleach or lemon (lemon juice) besides dish washing detergent and hot water. The video states dishwashing detergent and soaking the filter in lemon juice and water. Are you using small brushes to clean thoroughly. The video shows using a pipe cleaner brush to clean the spout (which I wasn't doing), a nylon brush to clean the filter, and scouring sponge for everything else. Try baby bottle cleaners.

    None of the instructions listed have removed the white accumulations clogging the stainless basket. 24 hr soak in 50/50 vinegar - still there, 100% lemon juice 4 hr soak- still there, a flame to burn it out - still there, baking soda soak for 24 hrs - still there, using a compressor to blow out clogs from basket - still there. My daughter suggested BIZ enzyme detergent soak. 24 hour soak in a large kitchen bowl, using 1/3 cup Enzyme detergent and 80 % gone! 2 weeks later soaked stainless steel basket for 24 hours, and NOT A TRACE OF ACCUMULATIONS OR CLOGGING. Shines like it is brand new.

    I have the omega 8006 I scrub the small screen with a soapy brush and then everything else just gets rinsed off and a quick once over with a bottle brush. Occasionally when I know I'm going to be juicing again really soon, I'll just rinse off the parts, but I still scrub the screen good because once something gets dried up in that it's never coming out.

    Lol Brandon. If I had a pressure washer that would be an idea. I've done all the things mentioned above. I might try to soak the parts overnight in baking soda and then again in vinegar. Apparently it gets smells out of plastic food containers. http://www.wikihow.com/Fix-Smelly-Plastic-Containers

    Ok I soaked my juicer parts for 3 hours with hot water and a powder baking soda based cleaning agent and it came up like new!! No more horrible smell! All the brown caked on stuff came off easily too. I made sure to wash it and rinse it several times again after soaking it just to make sure all the cleaning agent was gone. I'll do this once per week. =)

    Lantana, I put my juicer parts in a bowl of water after I make my juice. Then, after drinking my juice, I can wash it easily with soap, water, and a "toothbrush". I have an Omega Vert 350. I love it!

    I give the parts the once over in hot water (do have to scrub the screen part with a toothbrush). With my Omega 8003 there aren't a whole lot of parts to clean. I also put it in the dishwasher every night.

    I have the omega vrt350 also, I just rinse it with cold water and brush what needs brushed. Easy clean up.

    If you make 5 different juices at one time to be used throughout the day, how do you clear out the previous taste before juicing the next concoction?
