How often do you clean your Keurig coffee maker?
I only need to clean slime out of the water chamber maybe twice per year. I have a water softener and reverse osmosis, so the water I use has no chlorine left in it or much of anything else, so it makes for great-tasting coffee.
The hub leaves the lid off the chamber to refill it during breakfast until we are done with multiple cups of beverages.
If he didn’t, the airborne mold would have less chance to get inside the water chamber. I used to do the breakfast, but now he does.
Back when I was meticulous about keeping it clean and covered, we didn’t have to clean it as often. Because I have a water softener, it does not develop limescale.
How often should you clean a Keurig maker?
I use filtered water in mine, and I only clean it when it complains, which is about once a year.
If you use regular tap water you’ll end up cleaning it every couple of months, especially if your water is hard.
How do I clean the inside of a Keurig coffee maker?
To clean the inside of a Keurig fill the water reservoir with a mixture of half vinegar and half tap water. Next, turn on the machine, and with an empty cup, run a brew cycle with no coffee pod in place.
Empty and replace the cup and run another brew cycle (without a coffee pod). Repeat until the water reservoir is nearly empty.
Then, dump out the remaining vinegar mixture and wash the water reservoir with soap and water.
Next, fill the reservoir with tap water and run several brew cycles (without a coffee pod) until the water coming out no longer smells of vinegar.
This process will remove the mineral build-up in the machine resulting in better-tasting coffee.
What is the best way to clean a Keurig coffee maker?
