Clean your juicer properly
While juicing is fun and beneficial to your health, you also must know how to clean the juicer properly. While cleaning the juicer is not the highlight of juicing, it is a vital step in the process, and once you get the cleaning steps down, it will not be as time consuming.
Firstly, unplug your juicer; you want to make sure there is no power to the unit before you begin. You will want to remove the grate basket, the pulp strainer, the plunger, and the cover. You may have more parts, depending the brand of juicer, but the main point is to make sure all of the parts involved in the juicing process are removed.
Next, rinse the parts with warm water to remove any pieces of vegetables or fruit that remains, and set them aside. Wash the parts with warm soapy water, if it is dishwasher safe, which most are, you can use the dishwasher instead, but make sure all the loose food particles have been rinsed off. If washing by hand, simply wash all pieces thoroughly and then allow them to dry.
Lastly, the base of the juicer should be cleaned each time with a sponge or dampened paper towel with just a tad bit of soap. You are now ready for your next juicing recipe.
