Cleaning enthusiasts have shared a simple 37p hack for cleaning air fryers in “five minutes”. One fan of cleaning pro Mrs Hinch claimed the hack makes air fryers “easier” to clean. With energy bills on the rise, many Britons are switching off their ovens and investing in air fryers instead. The nifty gadget has become popular over the last few years and can cook everything from chips and chicken to cakes and fry-ups.

Air fryers are more energy-efficient than most conversion ovens because they cook food a lot faster.

However, like ovens, air fryers can be tricky to clean especially as each one is slightly different.

Luckily, fans of cleaning expert Mrs Hinch, whose full name is Sophie Hinchliffe, have shared their simple methods for cleaning air fryers.

Fans of the cleaning sensation have taken to social media in recent years to share their cleaning expertise.

On one such group, Facebook user Dawn Mills asked Mrs Hinch fans: “Air fryer! How to give it a good clean-out?

“I have tried soaking it over night. It’s bit better but I need something stronger, thanks.”

The post was inundated with more than 70 comments from fellow cleaning enthusiasts but the most suggested hack was to use washing up liquid and water in the air fryer and turn it on for five minutes.

Ashley Macrae said: “I put water and Fairy liquid in mine then switch it on for 10 minutes and it cleans it great.”

Sarah Stewart commented: “Bit of water, Fairy liquid and turn it on for five minutes or so.”

Niki Harris replied: “Washing up liquid, a little water then turn on for five minutes, rinse and wipe.”

Other suggestions from cleaning enthusiasts included using liners, a dishwasher tablet, Elbow Grease and white vinegar.

Mandy Mackenzie said: “I use liners, easier to clean. Just use washing liquid and a non-scratch scourer.”

Katy Sutherland replied: “Dishwasher tablet, hot water and leave to soak overnight.”

Lianne Fletcher-Creak commented: “Elbow grease I use! Seems to do the job, spray it on when it’s still warm, and it all wipes off.”

Lesley Bandy wrote: “Liners are the answer, I have disposable and silicone… no more mess.”

Rhonda Murray suggested: “Dishwasher tablet. Cold water and let the air fryer do the rest as it will heat the water.”

Amy Nurse said: “I always spray white vinegar on the items that get food stuck to them first. Leave it for a minute, then wipe off.

“After that, wash it up as normal with Fairy liquid and water. It helps lift even the stubborn bits off. Makes life easier.”
