What to do about my “cloudy” blender jar

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl: I love my Vitamix / Blendtec, but the jar gets cloudy. What do I do?

Answer: This is what BlendTec customer service says:

1.  Juice of 1 lemon, 2-3 Tbsp of baking soda, and some water. Then, run to speed ten and scrub with non-scratch sponge.

2. Vinegar mixed with baking soda (and water) will also work, OR 1-2 Tbsp powdered dishwasher detergent dissolved in 1-2 cups hot water that is left to soak for 1 hour.

3. To get “smells” out, just grinding up a lemon works like it does for your garbage disposal.

  1. My magic eraser works well too to get the jar clean as well and the base unit. I just can’t seem to get the crevices in the clear plastic part of the lid clean. Maybe I will try soaking it vinegar as you mentioned above.

  2. Thank you so much Robin! For the past few weeks I’ve been looking at my Vita-Mix and wondering how in the heck to really clean it.
    The lemon/baking soda worked the best for me.
    Really appreciate it!

  3. Also tip from my hubby the greensmoothie dude…. wash & WIPE after use right away! He insists to do that with our new four sided BlendTec container…& it does sparkle now…hmmm think he has something here :-)..
