How to Clean a Keurig Coffee Maker with Vinegar

If you have a Keurig, you no longer have to think about filters and ground coffee beans every morning. But many of us are probably guilty of not having thought about it cleaning it too – and the thing can get dirty. To like all coffee machines and Pod Coffee Systems, Keurigs can serve as a breeding ground for harmful bacteria and mold, if not cleaned regularly. Earned? We also.

We asked Carolyn Forte, Director of Good Housekeeping Institute Cleaning laboratory for advice on maintaining your morning machine. Start by purchasing the following detergents, and then follow the timeline below of how often you should clean every part of your brewer.

Every week:

Ideally, you want to wash the removable parts of your machine on a weekly basis.

    1. Pull the plug out of the socket.
    2. Disassemble the water container, the lid, the cup bowl and the K cup holder.
    3. Clean the cup compartment and the K cup holder in warm soapy water.
    4. Remove the water filter for the water tank and the lid and wipe the surfaces with a damp soap cloth.
    5. Rinse the container and lid with water and let the air dry – you don’t want to dry it with a cloth as this can leave fluff.
    6. Wipe the outside surface with a damp sponge.
    7. Replace all removable parts and reconnect the device.

Every two months:

Replace the water filter cartridge to keep your coffee fresh every other month.

    1. Start soaking a new cartridge five minutes in freshwater, then rinse for 60 seconds.
    2. Wash the mesh of the lower filter holder.
    3. Insert the cartridge into the upper filter holder and snap open the lid.
    4. Finally, put it back in your reservoir and lock it.

Every three to six months:

Descale your machine To remove hard water minerals that can accumulate over time and impair functionality.

    1. Start the descaling process by filling the reservoir with 10 ounces of White wine vinegar or Keurig’s descaling solution.
    2. Start the brewing cycle without a K-cup and let the machine run as usual with a cup to catch the liquid.
    3. Repeat this process a second time.
    4. Repeat the process one last time, but with 10 ounces of freshwater to remove any vinegar taste.
    5. Brew coffee as usual.

As needed:

If you see reasons in your K-Cup holder, use a sponge to remove them to prevent them from ending up in your drink tomorrow morning. If you have brewing problems, coffee grounds can also get stuck in the needles, punching the entry and exit points through which the water flows.

Clean the Keurig needles: First pull the plug out of the socket. Keurig then recommends that you use a paper clip carefully before rinsing to remove clogging residues in the needles. (See where to find them This video.) For a Keurig 2.0, you can use the … Keurig Brauer maintenance accessories instead.

As long as you follow these steps, you no longer have to worry about anything other than coffee in your morning brew (well, unless you like yours with milk and sugar).
