Three Ways To Clean Your Coffee Maker
- Vinegar: The old standby for cleaning your mom’s pot. You simply run vinegar and water through your coffee maker for an entire pot, then rinse with another pot of water for a full cycle. Who likes vinegar mixed with your coffee? Not I, but hey rinse it twice. No one wants their Trusty Joe tasting like vinegar.
- Baking soda: Use 1/4 cup of baking soda mixed with warm water so the baking soda dissolves properly. Then wash rinse and repeat as above.
- affresh® Coffeemaker Cleaner: The easiest way is to just use the new standard in our house. affresh® Coffeemaker Cleaner is a specifically designed cleaner for both multi-cup and single cup coffee makers.
Once you have dropped the tablet in, the freshness of a new coffee pot is yours to have.
How to use for multi-cup coffeemakers:
1. FILL the reservoir with water to max level
2. Drop 1 tablet into reservoir. (For coffeemakers with covered reservoirs, fill the brew pot with water and dissolve 1 tablet in the brew pot, then pour solution into water reservoir)
3. RUN 1 brew cycle (or ‘clean’ cycle if applicable) into brew pot.
4. DISCARD dirty water from brew pot and then fill reservoir with fresh water to max level
5. RUN 1 brew cycle using fresh water then discard to rinse the coffeemaker.
How to use for single serve brewers:
FILL the reservoir to max level. Drop 1 tablet into reservoir.
RUN 2 brew cycles selecting largest cup size, discarding dirty water between brews.
DISCARD remaining water from reservoir. Fill reservoir with fresh water to max level.
RUN 2 additional brew cycles and then discard to rinse coffeemaker.
