How to quickly wash a dirty grater: a popular fruit will help

Lemon juice will wash away all dirt with the help of acids in its composition

Washing a grater seems like a simple task at first glance. Cleaning it after brightly colored fruits and vegetables or fatty cheese is not so easy. They leave stains, but you can't rub them with a coarse abrasive because they will dull the grater, and it's problematic to use soft napkins or sponges because they will leave a lot of scraps on the object that are worn off by the blades.

OBOZREVATEL figured out how to easily and effectively restore the original appearance of a grater. An ordinary fruit can help with this.

And it's lemon, whose juice is rich in natural fruit acids. They effectively dissolve grease and organic contaminants. The main condition is that the juice should be fresh.

To take advantage of its properties, just take a lemon, cut it in half, and rub it thoroughly over the entire surface of the grater. Leave the juice to act for about 10 minutes. During this time, it will effectively dissolve accumulated dirt. Then rinse the device under warm water and dry it.

Stubborn dirt can also be cleaned with salt. To do this, first treat the surface of the grater with lemon juice and then sprinkle with salt. Leave it in this form for 2 hours. Then the salt is gently wiped off with a soft sponge and dishwashing liquid in the direction of the blades. And then rinse and dry.

Experts advise not to postpone washing the grater for later, because prolonged contact with contaminants can cause corrosion even of stainless steel. Also, do not wait until the item can be loaded into the dishwasher. It is better to treat it with lemon juice immediately after use. In this case, rust will not appear on the grater.
