Cleaning a bread maker

(12 Posts)

I am essentially a dirty skank. How do I clean the inside of my bread maker? Or is that beyond hope? (Pic attached hopefully)

damn confused I think if mine got to that point I'd be saying "screw it" and ordering a new one.

Maybe try working one side at a time, put the breadmaker on the side, sprinkle the side with baking soda then cover with a vinegar soaked dishcloth and let it sit before scrubbing?

Is that mould? Get a new one.

How has it become like that? confused

In my breadmaker it is just the tin and paddle that get dirty.

I think it's just scorched on flour or dough. I'm basically a shit housekeeper.

Get a new one and clean it after every use.

I can't really afford a new one but thank you for the advice.

Whilst I've got you, any ideas about removing grease from kitchen tiles and cabinets?

I'd unplug it and give it a good scrub with a damp sponge. Turn it upside down to empty any crumbs. Let it dry. Will feel much better!

How does the flour and dough get there in the first place?

Do you not fill the tin before placing it into the bread maker? This method means that any spills are on the work surface and not in the machine.

Bar Keepers Friend cream cleaner is brilliant. Don't get the spray as it isn't as good. The smell isn't great but it does the job.

try some damp paper with some wholemeal (i.e. gritty) flour.

To clean greasy cabinets and tiles, use sugar soap in a spray. Wear gloves as it is very drying, on the plus side it doesn't smell of anything. Spray on, leave for 30 seconds or so then wipe over with a cloth wrung out in hot water with a drop of Stardrops or multi purpose cleaner. If it's really greasy you may need to repeat and/or use a nylon scouring pad. Be careful if you have painted kitchen units. Use a tea towel to dry off once you have cleaned to stop smears.

shock Good Lord! Try Mr Muscle orange kitchen cleaner or barkeepers friend powder/paste. On this and the kitchen grime. It may help. Seriously though, how did you get spillage in a breadmaker???
