Wie reinige ich meinen Grinder überhaupt richtig?

How do I actually clean my grinder properly?

Cleaning your grinder regularly is crucial to ensure optimal performance and longevity. Here is a detailed guide on how to effectively clean your grinder:

What you need:

  1. Isopropyl alcohol (at least 90% purity)
  2. Q-tips or small brush
  3. A container for soaking
  4. A clean towel
  5. Cotton swab or toothpick
  6. Warm water

Step-by-step instructions:

Step 1: Disassemble the Grinder

  • Remove all parts of the grinder, including the upper and lower chambers, lid, and grinder. If possible, also remove the strainer insert.

Step 2: Remove any coarse residue

  • Tap the grinder lightly against a hard surface to remove any grit. You can also use a soft brush to remove any loose herb residue.

Step 3: Soak in Isopropyl Alcohol

  • Fill a container with isopropyl alcohol and place the grinder parts inside. Let them soak for at least 30 minutes. The alcohol will dissolve stubborn residues and impurities.

Step 4: Cleaning with brushes

  • Use Q-tips, a small brush, or toothbrush to scrub the parts of the grinder. Pay particular attention to the teeth, edges and corners. The alcohol will help loosen any sticky residue.

Step 5: Clean the sieve insert

  • If your grinder has a sieve insert, clean it carefully. Use Q-tips or a soft brush to clean both sides of the sieve.

Step 6: Rinse with water

  • After you finish cleaning with alcohol, rinse the grinder parts thoroughly with warm water to remove any alcohol residue.

Step 7: Let dry

  • Place the cleaned parts on a clean towel and allow them to dry completely before reassembling the grinder.

Step 8: Check and Reassemble

  • Check that all parts are thoroughly cleaned and reassemble the grinder. Make sure everything fits correctly.

Note: Avoid using aggressive cleaning agents as these can leave residue. Isopropyl alcohol is effective and safe for most grinders.

By following these steps, you will ensure that your grinder is always in perfect condition and delivers optimal grinding results #CleanGrinder
