It can be hard to clean things like coffee grinders, small blenders and other kitchen tools that help puree and grind up things. Since soap and water can’t always be used, try the next-best thing: Throw in some dry white rice. The rice breaks down into a starchy powder that picks up leftover debris, and since the bran oil has been taken out of the rice, it won’t leave any residue. Just add a few tablespoons, blend away and voila! It’s all good.
