I’ve had a suggestion to do a post about cleaning the Cricut machine. For me, the first step is a proactive one: I ALWAYS close my machine when I’m not using it. This way, less dust can enter the inside of the machine. When I do need to dust my machine, I use a dry cloth on the outside. Occasionally, I’ve also gently dusted the inside with a dry cloth. I like to use microfiber cloths as I find they pick up a lot of particles and don’t leave smears of dust.
If you have a Cricut Cake machine, you can use a damp cloth to clean the inside – in fact, that is recommended after each use. It is also important to clean the blade of the Cricut Cake after each use. It is recommended that you clean up immediately, before the fondant dries.
