How to Make Hummingbird Nectar and Refill a Feeder Fast

Step #4: Clean Hummingbird Feeder
Take down your feeder, dump it out, and rinse it thoroughly with hot water. I keep a little scrub brush by my sink, to get the dirt and mold out of the seams. If it’s super-dirty, I add some dish soap, but I find that if I do it frequently, a quick scrub with hot water is all it needs.
If you’re super-savvy, you can just put this feeder in the dishwasher and pull out a fresh one! If you’re spending more than two minutes cleaning your feeder, you should buy a new one – the flat ones are very easy to clean and top-rack dishwasher safe.
