While bowls, cups, and spoons are all easy to clean, cleaning the whisk with its many tines may be a dishwasher’s nightmare. You’re going to need to clean between each and every tine so that your next baking project doesn’t taste like the previous one. It’s a hassle, and it can be frustrating even if you’re not a neat freak.

No cake will suffer from clumpy egg whites or not whipped enough egg whites again.

Here’s what you do:

Using one of the bowls you just used to whisk all of your ingredients together, fill it up with the same amount of water as the batter that it previously contained. Add a few drops of liquid dishwashing detergent. Place your dirtied whisk in the bowl of soapy water… and then whisk. Keep whisking until the whisk you’re using is completely clean of any batter still stuck to its tines and the bowl of soapy water is now full of suds.

Rinse the whisk and clean the rest of your remaining baking utensils as desired.
