  3. Cleaning a blender can be tricky. So, in order to make it more convenient, squirt liquid soap into it (only a few drops), fill it with warm water (halfway), cover and turn on the blender. The mess will be blended away. Rinse it. If it’s necessary, repeat the process. This method can be used for almost any food processor.
