Ever since I was a kid, I have loved juices. I’m sure most of you love them as well. That’s why there are so many juice stands you will find wherever you might be since they are such popular drinks. For some, they are a means of easily consuming your share of nutrients and for some they are a delicious snack. However, instead of relying on juice stands for your healthy drinks. It’s far more convenient and cost effective to get your own personal juicer and have your drinks whenever you want at a far more economical price than what the juice stand will charge you for every glass. Although a juicer is a fairly simple tool, if you are new to juicing you need to know a few simple things regarding the use of a juicer.

Store it where it’s easily accessible:
Rather than storing it away in a closet where it will gather dust and you will even forget you own a juicer, keep it accessible on your kitchen counter so that you won’t resist taking it out and using it whenever you are in the mood for some fresh juice.
Wash it properly after each use:
Don’t let the remains of fruits and vegetables dry in the nooks and crannies of your juicer otherwise it will become very hard to clean. Your best option is to wash the juicer thoroughly right after you use it when the food is still wet. When you keep your juicer clean and free of food odors, you will be more inclined to use it frequently.
Choose the ingredients wisely:
Your juicer does not restrict you to juicing only fruits. You can also make vegetables juices and even combine different fruits and vegetables to create a unique flavor depending on what you like. However you need to consider the ingredients that you choose for juicing. Not all the fruits and vegetables will be juiced efficiently by the juicer. You might not get the best results when using bananas or peaches in your juicer. You can also use certain vegetable like carrots and greens in your juicer. Just be careful that the produce you use are fresh and not rotting otherwise it will ruin the taste of all the ingredients you add to it. To enhance the taste, you can also add a bit of honey, cinnamon, ginger or any other flavor you like.
Follow the instruction manual:
Once you have selected suitable ingredients for your drink, you will need to use the juicer to juice them. If this is the first time you are using it, you should read the instruction manual and follow all the instructions given in it carefully rather than using it on your own.
Once you have used your juicer, you will understand how easy it is and you will be using it every single day for fresh, homemade juices.
