Woman shares her amazingly simple life hack for cleaning an air fryer

Air fryers have exploded in popularity over the past few years - notably for making healthy alternatives to favourite meals in a fraction of the time.

However, the appliance can be notoriously tricky to clean.

But one Instagrammer has blown up the internet after going viral for sharing her game-changing life hack to remove grease and grime without the hassle of scrubbing - and all you need is a little bit of washing liquid and water.

Showcasing the hack, she begins by taking out the drawer and squirting dishwashing liquid onto it.

She then adds a bit of water before locking the drawer back into the air fryer and setting the timer at three minutes to heat.

Once the three minutes were up, she rinsed the dirty water out of the drawer and tipped it into the sink before showing it to look "like new" again.

Her cleaning hack has amassed more than 3.5 million views with many describing it as "genius", a "game-changer" and "mind-blowing".

Others pointed out that not all air fryers are the same, so it's best to "read their manual" before trying her hack.
