  1. You have recently brewed your favorite milk-based drink in a milk frother. You will notice that after pouring the drinks, there are congeals on the attached whisks and wall of the frother.
  2. Remove the carafe jug from the main unit to remove those congeals, and no need to carry the base of the frother with it, just the carafe jug after making sure you have unplugged the machine from the power source.
  3. Warm some of the water and fill the interior of the jug more than half. It helps to remove the congeals and remove almost 70% congeals. Using warm water can help remove congeals more smoothly, or else normal water also does the trick.
  4. Throw the water that is in the carafe jug and re-fill it with warm water but this time, use a soft sponge or finger to remove leftover congeals. Don’t use abrasive items as they can damage the interior.
  5. Repeat this again until you are sure that the interior of the frother is cleaned.

When cleaning the exterior, usually the base, you have to be careful. A dump cloth will do just fine and use it to wipe stains or leftover congeals. Use a dry cloth to dry your unit and thoroughly clean it. You can use olive oil or any lubricative oil on the exterior part to keep it sparkling.
