What better day than hump day to talk about cleaning? Some of you may be planning your evenings, your weekends. No, not me. I’m thinking about cleaning my spiralizer!
Cleaning your spiralizer is extremely important! Listen, I’m the last one who should be preaching about cleaning (because I hate to do it and avoid it at all costs), but when it comes to being safe and taking care of your spiralizer, I’m all about it.
As you’ll see in the video below, I use a brush. It’s essential that you buy a round brush and designate it to your spiralizer. Don’t clean anything but the spiralizer with this brush.
On my Vimeo Channel:
Or, on my YouTube Channel:
I suggest this brush: OXO Soap-Squirting Round Palm Brush. In the video, I’m using a different one and that’s only because I forgot to pick up a new OXO brush before filming the video (my current one is embarassingly dirty). The OXO brush is fantastic – it fills up with soap and offers great leverage to clean.
Not only will the brush scrub the hard-to-reach parts of your spiralizer (like the teeth on the handle and the metal blades), it will prevent any nicks or cuts from the sharp blades and teeth.
Also, the spiralizer will brown and yellow if you don’t rinse and clean immediately after using. Take twenty seconds and rinse and scrub the spiralizer and yours will last a very long time. The first spiralizer I ever owned lasted me 11 months and I was spiralizing 3-5 times a day with it!
That’s my public service announcement. Now, go back to planning your exciting weekends!
