Cleaning the coffee maker is quite simple to do
and makes the coffee taste so much better.
The recommendations for cleaning on my coffee maker
is to clean it after 60 uses.
This works out to about once a month for us.
First, add four cups of vinegar
and eight cups of water.
Add a fresh coffee filter.
If your coffee maker has a self-clean button turn that on
and then turn on the coffee maker
and let it brew through the cycle.
If you don't have the self-clean
just turn on the coffee maker and do a regular brew cycle.
Once the cycle is finished let it sit for 15 minutes,
empty the vinegar/water mixture
and run another cycle through,
although this time with just plain water.
If you haven't cleaned your coffee maker in quit some time
you may want to do a second vinegar/water cycle
and then a rinse cycle.
My coffeemaker has a charcoal filter
so I replace it when I clean the coffeemaker.
Remove the old filter
and replace with a fresh charcoal filter.
Let it soak in water for 10 minutes.
Then rinse under running water for 10-15 seconds.
Let drain completely and place back in the coffeemaker.
Brew a fresh pot of coffee and enjoy!
