We all love our morning coffee but at times the tools that help us start the day need cleaning. The most important thing to do is to make sure before cleaning your Keurig machine it is unplugged. Remove the water reservoir, mug stand, K-cup holder and wash them in warm soapy water. Make sure to clean the bottom the reservoir good at the bottom by the filter area as this can get clogged and make your Keurig not work. Make sure to rinse everything good to avoid any soap taste in your coffee. Next, fill the reservoir with a mix one half white vinegar and water then start the brew cycle without inserting a K-cup. Repeat until the reservoir is empty this process will help remove lime and scale buildup. Keurig recommends descaling your brewer at least every 3-6 months depending on your water source. Lastly, repeat the process you just did use only plain water in the reservoir to remove any residual vinegar taste.
