How to Clean Your Keurig | DIY Cleaning Tips
Can you start your day and function like a normal human being without coffee? If your answer is yes, well good for you! Ever since I can remember, I always greet my mornings with a nice cup of coffee. Am I a coffee addict? Probably. I just can't seem to function properly and get everything in order without a cup of joe. That's why when we bought our Keurig coffee maker, it was heaven. I don't think I can ever live without it. I may be exaggerating a bit but it seems true enough for me.
As convenient as having a coffee maker is, you still have to clean it up. You can't expect to have great tasting coffee all the time if you haven't cleaned it for a month. So if you're thinking that cleaning your Keurig is complicated, think again. This easy DIY tutorial will show you how easy it is to have a clean Keurig all the time.
What you'll need for Keurig cleaning:
- white vinegar
- all-purpose cleaner
- dish washing liquid
- cleaning toothbrush
- microfiber cloth
Take apart the reservoir and lid followed by the drip tray and cover.
Now to detach the K cup holder and funnel. Be very careful when removing this since there's a sharp needle at the end.
To clean the lid, just get a damp cloth and wipe it. For the rest of the parts that you took apart, they're dishwasher safe. So just put them on the top rack and that's it.
TIP: If you don't have a dishwasher, you can soak everything in warm soapy water for about 15 minutes. After that just wipe everything with a sponge or rag, rinse and dry with a towel.
Open your coffee maker and gently brush off any coffee residue with your cleaning toothbrush.
Using your microfiber cloth and some all-purpose cleaner, wipe your coffee maker clean from top to bottom.
TIP: In case you encounter some white stuff around the edge take a cloth or rag, soak it in some white vinegar and wipe the affected area. You'll see that it will easily come off.
Now that all the parts are clean, attach everything together and run a descaling brew. Fill half of your reservoir with vinegar and start brewing. This will clean the inside of your Keurig. Do this until your run out of vinegar.
Your Keurig coffeemaker is all clean now. Just one problem, it smells and tastes like vinegar. Don't fret. All you have to do is fill your reservoir with water and run it for a couple of brewing cycles until it runs out or the water no longer smells of vinegar.
And you're done! You no longer have to worry about bad tasting coffee. You'll always have an amazing cup each morning to get you going.
