    How to Clean a Keurig Coffee Maker

    If your coffee maker has not been performing best, then it’s time to clean it. Here is the procedure of how to clean a Keurig coffee maker. But the common problem is where to begin with so many parts.

    We asked the experts at Keurig how to clean the machine also known as “descaling” and here is a laid down process to getting a sparkling coffee pot with a common household item.                                                   

    What You Need

    Ingredients

    • Soap
    • Vinegar
    • Keurig descaling solution
    • Water
    • Large ceramic mug

    Equipment

    • Lint-free cloth

     A quick and easy guide is given below to keep your coffee machine, lean, mean, and clean so you can brew your coffee in bacteria-free peace.

    1. How to clean the outside of Keurig?

    Take a wet, soapy lint-free cloth. Wipe away dust or splatters from outside of Keurig. Now gently slide out the drip tray, empty, wipe, and return its position. But never submerge the machine in water. After all, it is an electrical appliance.

    2. How to clean individual parts of Keurig?

    Turn off the machine and allow it to cool. Now lift the lever to disassemble the K-Cup pod holder and funnel. Gently wash both parts in the sink or on the top shelf of the dishwasher on a low-temperature cycle. Remove the water reservoir and lid. Wash both with soapy water in the sink. Rinse thoroughly and spray the filter with a faucet hole.

    3. How to clean Keurig using vinegar?

    Firstly, empty the water reservoir and if necessary, the filter also. Turn off the machine. Now fill the reservoir with 10 ounces of white vinegar. It will help in descaling your coffee maker. Also, add some water with vinegar to the water reservoir. Start the brew cycle without a K-cup. Repeat until the pool is empty, discarding the mug contents after each brew cycle. This process will help in removing lime and scale build-up.

    4. How to clean Keurig using a Keurig descaling solution?

    Fill the reservoir with the bottle of Keurig descaling solution. Before moving on to the next step fill the descaling solution bottle with water and pour it into the water reservoir. Place a large ceramic mug under the spout. Pour the contents of the mug into the sink. Press the brew button to perform a cleansing brew. Repeat until the reservoir becomes empty. After that remove and rinse the reservoir, fill it with fresh water, and repeat brew cycles until all the water is gone.

    Recommendations:

    • Filter replacement of the coffee maker is recommended after every two months for better coffee.
    • Do not towel dry the inside of the coffee maker because it may leave some lint behind which is untidy.
    • Use a ceramic mug under the spout of the coffee maker while cleansing with Keurig descaling solution.
    • Softened or distilled water is highly discouraged from being used in Keurig coffee makers. Bottled or spring water is the perfect choice when brewing with your Keurig.
    • Do not use any local descaling solution use only those that Keurig approves.
