Washing Blender Jars
Washing the blender jar can be a real chore, especially if foods have had time to harden. (And let’s be honest—who doesn’t procrastinate before taking on this annoying task?) Get a head start on the cleaning process by following this method: First, fill the dirty blender halfway with hot water and add a couple drops of liquid dish soap. Then, with the top firmly in place, turn the blender on high for 30 seconds. Most of the residue pours right out with the soapy water, and the blender jar need only be rinsed or lightly washed by hand. Another advantage to this technique: It keeps your fingers out of the jar and away from the sharp blade.
