Ice cream is a popular dessert loved by many. It has it’s own special day known as “National Vanilla Ice Day” celebrated on July 23rd and is one of the three foods most missed while astronauts are in space. It has come a long way since the 1970′s and 1980′s. Ice cream used to be made with raw eggs, causing many people to become ill after eating it, since then it no longer contains raw eggs. Traditional ice cream is not made using a soft serve machine or an ice cream machine. These machines, such as a Taylor soft serve ice cream machine, make dispensing ice cream easier, however they should be cleaned properly to avoid making people sick for reasons other than raw eggs. Read below to see some helpful tips for cleaning your Taylor 168 ice cream machine or any other soft serve ice cream machine.

It is important to ensure that your machine is in wash mode. This is important because if it is not then the water could freeze in the machine and damage the machine. The wash mode allows the water to flow through the machine to properly clean all inside parts.
There are certain things that should never be used to clean your Taylor 168 ice cream machine or other soft serve machines. Things like screwdrivers may seem like a good idea to remove stuck on debris, but they are not. Items that are specifically made for your machine should be the only ones that you use. Using other items such as a screwdriver can chip or damage metal parts on the machine.
