A few months ago I wrote about my love for my Misto. It wasn’t a sponsored post, I genuinely wanted to share how it has saved me money so you could benefit too.
I’d held off buying a Misto for ages because they are a little pricey. I’ve found that the cheapest ones are at Home Goods and TJ Maxx. My mom ended up buying me both of mine for Christmas and birthday presents last year and we use them weekly. One stores olive oil and the other stores truffle oil. You know how much I love my truffle oil, I can’t stand to waste it.
After I wrote my last blog post on the Misto I was overwhelmed with comments and questions on how to clean it once it gets clogged. At the time I had no idea. As fate would have it, both my Mistos clogged up shortly thereafter and I needed to find a solution! Now I’m sharing with you how easy it is to clean your Misto.
Come to find out, it is very easy to unclog the Misto. Before I teach you my secrets I should also teach you how to avoid clogs in the first place. According to the official Misto website, the best way to keep your Misto clog free is to release the pressure after every use. All that means if that you need to unscrew the top and screw it back on each time you use it. Easy, right?
Now, on to cleaning. All you do is let the pumps soak in warm, not soapy, water for a couple of hours, I left mine over night. Try to get all the oil out by spraying it until it is clear. Next, you can put warm water in the bottle, pump it, and continue to spray until the oil is gone and you are only spraying water. This might take a couple of tries. Don’t get upset if it doesn’t work on the first try. One of mine worked after only one soak, the other needed a couple more hours.
So easy, right?
I’m glad I figured out how to clean these because I wasn’t about to buy another one. When I buy (or someone gives me) nice things, I want them to last a good long while.
How do you use your olive oil? Do you spray it? Or pour it?
