ok, so i have an awesome 3.oo thrift store osterizer. i love it but i am noticing i have a hard time getting the rubber lid really clean.
i have a diswasher but stuff just sticks on the edges etc.
It is really starting to gross me out. I have soaked it in bleach, i have soaked it in vinegar.......i am stumped!
do you mean Stuff is sticking to it or that it's just changing colour? colour change is just a stain, like on your clothes. it's nothing to worry about. it's a tool after all, you can expect it to get roughed up with use. it won't affect performance and it's not dirty.
if it's actual food i don't know what to say, that's ick.

Try soaking it with olive oil or any other food oil. That's a way to remove the staining from plastic juicer parts, like carrots cause. Scrubbing with an abrasive will make minute scratches which will trap plant matter, makeing it harder to clean. The plant juices and cellulose form a hard glue like substance when dried, so getting parts into water quickly after juicing/blending will help with clean up. A dish cloth or paper towel can be soaked in oil and laid over parts too. That is also helpful for removing labels from containers and the glue left behind.

I guess you are paying one way or another. What about covering the top with Saran Wrap? There's Always the Vita-Mix.........

it seems to be green smoothie sludge/stain

Yes I have the same challenge going on. Green glue when dry. Even when washed right away it is still like that. I just clena it as best I can and leave it.
