We finally found the secret to easily cleaning your waffle iron YouTube screenshot

Homemade waffles are one of life?s simple joys. Whipping up a batch is easy, but the cleanup can be a pain. Stuck-on bits of waffle are tough to pick off.

And even if you?re waffle comes out without a mess, you still need to wipe out every single square. No thank you!

We?ve found a genius trick that eliminates all the hassle: steam cleaning. While the iron is still hot, pour water into it, like you would batter. Close the iron to trap the steam and wait a couple of minutes. Turn the iron sideways to drain the water out.
