Mrs Hinch fans discuss great 5p air fryer cleaning tip that gets rid of grease

Express shares how to clean air fryers in five minutes

Air fryers, while popular, can be tricky to clean, especially as grease and food bits build up over time.

Mrs Hinch fans have shared a 5p trick for cleaning air fryers that melts away grime and grease.

A woman recently asked the Mrs Hinch Cleaning tips group on Facebook for advice on cleaning her dirty air fryer.

She said: “My air fryer is so dirty. I use liners for some items but often just shove the food in there to cook. I’ve tried washing up liquid but it hasn’t worked, does anyone recommend anything else?”

She received over 30 responses from cleaning enthusiasts, but the most common suggestion was using dishwasher tablets.

One user said: “I soaked mine overnight with hot water and a dishwasher tablet. Then gave it a good scrub after using Elbow Grease. Mine is a glass one, it’s ideal.”

One person suggested: “While you think soaking should work, it often doesn’t, you need to take it up a notch and use something like a dishwasher tablet.

“Using a dishwasher tablet with some hot water works wonders to remove grease and grime.”

Another chimed in: “Dishwasher tablets are great to get rid of grease, I use them to clean pots and pans as well as stained dishes.”

For this trick, Brits should opt for the hard dishwasher tablets, not the pods. You can grab dishwasher tablets from Asda for £1.34 for 30 tablets at 4.5p each.

Lidl also offers dishwasher tablets at £2.99 for a pack of 40, costing about 8p each.

All you have to do is drop the air fryer basket and a dishwasher tablet into hot water and let it soak for 10 minutes.

If there are any stubborn spots, give them a light scrub under clean water, but if you’ve soaked it long enough, you might not need to.
