Take some time to show your toaster some love. Along with ditching all the crumbs that sometimes make your toaster smell a bit singed, a clean toaster works better at evenly warming your favorite bread. And this easy cleaning process only takes a few minutes.

  1. Start by unplugging your toaster and giving it a little shake over your sink.

  1. Give your toaster another shake upside down and right side up without the crumb tray over your sink. You can even use a toothbrush or small brush to gently clean inside the toaster through the crumb tray opening.
