Step 1: Bring toaster to sink Unplug the toaster and set it near a sink to minimize clean up. Warning Never immerse your toaster -- or any electrical appliance -- in water. Step 2: Brush off crumbs Insert the brush into the toaster slots to gently brush the crumbs off the metal parts inside, moving from top to bottom. Step 3: Empty crumb tray Lift the toaster, remove the crumb tray underneath, and dump the crumbs into your sink. Step 4: Clean tray Clean the tray with the sponge and mild soap or dishwashing solution. Rinse and dry the tray before you put it back. Tip If the tray isn't dirty, just brush the crumbs off and insert it back into the toaster. Step 5: Shake toaster To get any remaining crumbs out, turn the toaster upside down over the sink and shake it a few times. Step 6: Clean outside of toaster Wipe the outside of your toaster clean with a little diluted vinegar on the cloth. Tip If any bits of plastic bags or containers have melted onto the toaster's exterior, apply a little nail polish remover and then wipe it off. Step 7: Enjoy Admire your toaster -- it looks like new! Did You Know? Before electric toasters were invented, people toasted their bread over an open fire, using a long-handled fork or metal frame.
