How to clean the lids of instant jars
In order to effectively clean the plank, you need to disassemble the parts and clean them separately if this is done by hand. If you are using a dishwasher, put the individual small parts in a safety bag and then put them in the dishwasher.
The first thing you need to do is remove the float valve. To do this, look at the bottom of the cover and you will see a silicone overlay. Remove this cap and then slide the float valve to the other side.
Then remove the O-ring from the back of the O-ring holder. Here’s a quick tip, it’s a good idea to change the O-ring every 12-18 months and use different O-rings for sweet and savory food.
After removing the sealing ring, the locking sieve can now be removed from the block. This is the last small part removed.
Once everything is disassembled, put the large parts in the dishwasher, including the small parts in the bag and the dishwasher-safe cover.
After cleaning, make sure they are dry and put the small parts back on the cover.
Avoiding the cover is one thing and putting it back on is another, so here’s a step on how to put it all together so it works properly and leaks can occur.
To replace the float valve, insert it into the hole in the cover and make sure the small hole is facing up. After doing this, flip the cover over and replace the silicone cap.
Then take a clean and dry O-ring and place it on the O-ring holder. Gently press down on this area with your fingers.
It must be well centered behind the seal support and always move freely. Be careful when removing and installing the sealing ring to avoid damage that could lead to leakage.
Finally, you need to install a lock screen. To do this correctly, place it on your teeth and press it down until it snaps into place.
People often think that washing a flash pen in the dishwasher will cause the pan to malfunction and explode.
