Clean Blast.

You know I sometimes wonder  if  every housekeeper in the land knows secrets that they are just not telling me. Take for example my kitchen mixer (no it ain’t pink: I wish!). I risk life and precious fingers cleaning it  and I hate it. Oh how I hate it. Enough to make me choose a stir with an old fashioned fork over having to scrub it…

Then it struck me that I could reduce the hard work by half filling the bowl with hot water, squirting in a little fairy liquid and swooshing it awhile. 
And would you ever? A clean blade and a bowl  without  cake mix cemented to it’s sides!

But you’ve probably all been doing it for years haven’t you?

    I'm a bowl and wooden spoon girl myself, so don't have that problem, but I doubt I would have thought of it. You are very clever! (But I am a blonde, so not too sure if that's a compliment or not!!) LOL

    I've never thought of cleaning my Bosch this way, but why not? I do a version of this kind of cleaning in my microwave though. In a little bowl, I add water, a drop of dish soap, and a sprinkle of baking soda. Put it into the micro and heat for one minute. It'll boil over and steam up the micro. Just wipe it up and it's fresh and clean again!

    yes for years. when I read this in my manual for cleaning my blender – thought why not the mix master too!

  5. I'm a bowl and spoon girl too Suzie … mainly because my mixer (which was once my ex-H's grandmothers) broke down and I just never bought a new one. But when I get my bubble gum pink smeg, I will simply have to have a pink mixer too. No doubt about it!
