How do you clean a plant shredder?

We have one but I’ve never cleaned it and it’s starting to jam and slow down, I guess because of all the plant sap and gunk. Are there any special tricks anyone can share?

This is not something I have ever had to do, but apparently rubbing alcohol/ hand sanitiser removes sticky sap well, it depends if you can get to the areas with a cloth to wipe them over, its not recommended to wash them through with water especially if it is an electric one.
ideally they should get a wipe over after every use to prevent the build up.


Thanks Nick, I’ll see if I can open it to get access to the blade area to see if I can do that.
