Baking Soda Cleaning Hack:

@thetummyfairy My most viral reel of 2023!! This reel had 1.3 million views and was featured in several online magazines and new articles, how many will it reach this time? I still do this weekly by the way, and no I’m not pouring grease down my drain it was a sticky bbq sauce 😂 Toxic Free Cleaning Hack 🧽 When air fryers first became popular you probably seen the viral hacks on how to clean them by adding washing up liquid and water and airfrying this concoction for several minutes! You may not know, but things like washing up liquid have what’s called a “flashpoint”. So not only could this be a fire risk but it’s also can create chemical gases/toxins that they attach themselves to the inside of your Airfryer 🙈🙈 Ideally you should give your Airfryer a quick cheap after each use, but to get rid of a really messy recipe, this hack is ideal 🙌🏻🙌🏻 #airfryer #cleaninghack #toxinfree #irishfoodie #airfrying #airfryers #airfryerhacks #fyp ♬ Murder On The Dancefloor - Sophie Ellis-Bextor

Egg-cellent Hack:

@whatiateforbreakfast Cooking soft boiled eggs in the air fryer is a game changer 🙌. Method: 🥚 Add as many eggs to your air fryer basket as desired. 🥚 Select the air fry option, then cook at 180C for exactly 7 minutes for medium eggs straight from the fridge or 8 minutes for large eggs straight from the fridge (reduce the cooking time by 1 minute if you're using room temperature eggs). 🥚 Once the time is up, immediately place in egg cups & remove the tops if you are serving them with soldiers. 🥚 If you want to peel the eggs, place them in cold water to stop them cooking further until they are cool enough to handle. 🥚 Dry on some kitchen paper then tap all over with a teaspoon to crack the shell. 🥚 Using the handle of a teaspoon like a lever, peel the eggs (my Grandad's trick, much easier than using fingers!). 🥚 Slice to reveal a perfect yolk 😍. Enjoy! #airfryereggs #airfryerboiledeggs #airfryer #boiledegg #eggs #egg #airfryerideas #foodtok #airfryermaster #breakfast #ninjaairfryer #whatiateforbreakfast ♬ Wildest Dreams (Taylor's Version) - Taylor Swift
