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.
