How to clean my juicer
« on: September 15, 2013, 04:50:49 PM »
Does anyone have any suggestions for a generally safe substance to use to clean my juicer. It is an Angel 5500 and the parts are stainless steel.
I juice carrots everyday and the tiny holes in the screen get blocked tafter awhile and the grinding gears eventually get coated by some sort of white substance which I think is calcium.  There are many small crevices in the parts where things build up.
I have previously used bleach but it eats the material after awhile.  I tried citric acid and it didn't work at all.  Lemon juice doesn't work.
I currently use denture tablets which work but not as well as I would like.  They are also expensive and take a long time, basically a day.
Is there a substance which will clean the screen and gears in a reasonable time very well?

I like the denture cleaning tablets best.  You probably need the bubble pressure to drive out clogs.  I can't think of a stronger household chemical, that safe to use, that will give better results.
Hey, I'm not judging.  I just like to shoot straight.  I'm a man of science.

White vinegar would be my first try. If it really is calcium buildup, you may have to let it sit for a while.
