    Well I hadn't used my smoothie maker for a couple of weeks. I went to use it today and a horrible smell came out. Knowing that you can take off the base I did so and gave it a good clean.
    Then I started running water through the tap bit (upside down), and this black mouldy snot-like slime came out. It was absolutely gross!! I can't even describe how disgusting it was. And I was about to use it :jelous:

    But one good thing was that I discovered that you can unscrew the tap bit of it, I didn't think you could before so I had just been rinsing through after using it, as best I could..

    So now I've left it soaking in some boiling water and disinfectant, having thoroughly rinsed out all the black snot I could find and cleaned using cotton buds!

    Bit pointless to post this I know, but I thought I'd share anyways!

    Woo I just looked on ebay, I assumed that smoothie makers would be like £20-£30. They're much cheaper, you can get them for under £10 inc postage. Looks like I'll be getting myself a new one then!

    EWWWEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I do keep a pack of Sterident under the sink for cleaning things like flasks out after use. I guess a regular soak wouldn't hurt your new smoothie either PB!!!

    LOL!
    Thing is I did wash it & soak after every use. I didn't take it apart because I didn't know you could take the tap off and the base bit seemed ok.
    I know now! so Every time I will be taking the tap off and washing it!
    Haha! sorry for being minging above, couldn't resist.
