John is a coffee freak! Every morning he makes a thermos of coffee to take with him to work. He does not start the day very easily without a cup of coffee. Our poor coffee maker gets used and abused and somedays it just seems to be a bit dirty and grungy.
Here are the steps I use to keep our coffee maker clean and running smoothly. I dread the day that our coffee maker breaks and John does not have coffee to start the day.
1. Pour 4 cups of white vinegar into resevoir
Let stand for 30 minutes
Turn on coffee maker and run vinegar through the machine
I then run t 2-3 cycles of water until the vinegar smell is gone
2. Wipe off the machine and cords
3. If your coffee machine parts are washable run them through the dishwasher
4. Sit back and enjoy a nice cup of coffee
