How To to Clean a Strainer

Martha Stewart Living Television

Cleaning a strainer or sieve can be tricky, because food particles tend to lodge in the tiny holes. To avoid this, do the following:


Wash your strainer immediately, so that food particles don't solidify.

If solids do end up sticking, soak the strainer in hot, soapy water. 

Scrub the strainer inside and out using a stiff-bristled brush.

If food particles persist, the strong pressure of a hand-held spray-hose attachment may help.
