For the next How to Clean Series post I’ll be going over the steps of How to Clean a Toaster. My toaster is probably one of the most filthy small appliances in my kitchen, so a good cleaning is in order every couple of weeks.
Please keep in mind that the below steps may vary a little depending on the type of toaster that you own.
Step One: Unplug your toaster and move it next to a sink or trash bin. Of course, do not put the toaster in the sink though. 😉
Step Two: Use a toothbrush to gently brush residue and crumbs from the inside of the toaster (not with water), moving top to bottom.
Step Three: Open the toaster’s crumb tray and empty it into the trash or your sink.
Step Four: Use a sponge to thoroughly clean the crumb tray (if it removes from your toaster). If it does not remove, use a damp paper towel or cloth to wipe it down.
Step Five: Tip the toaster upside down and gently shake/tap over a trash can or sink to remove any remaining crumbs inside of the toaster.
Step Six: Make sure the tray is completely dry and then put it back into place.
Step Seven: Dampen a paper towel or cloth with a little vinegar and water and then use it to wipe down the exterior of your toaster.

If you’ve been a long time Bargain Blessings reader, you might be might be thinking and how exactly does cleaning my Toaster relate to saving money? Well, I am a huge believer in protecting and maintaining the items that I spend money on. Either we take care of our investments (big and small) or we neglect them and end up having to purchase a replacement before it would have otherwise been necessary. This is why during the next couple of months, I am going to be taking you all through a series of “How to Clean” posts.
