How to clean your Vitamix

how to clean your Vitamix Add this to the high-class, first world problem list: smoothie build-up in your Vitamix.

With daily use, and a parade of exotic ingredients (coconut milk) and tarnishing spices (turmeric), the Vitamix blender can get crusty and cloudy. Ew.

Yesterday a Vitamix virtuoso tipped us off on how to get our beloved blender shiny and new again. We tried it and it’s magic.

Step 1.  Squeeze the juice of one lime into the Vitamix and add two cups of water. (If you don’t have lime, use two tablespoons of baking soda.)

Step 2. Turn the Vitamix on high and let it run for a solid two minutes.

At this point the water should be hot (the Vitamix acts like a dishwasher), and your blender should be shiny. Think of it as a juice cleanse for your blender. —Jamie McKillop
