How to Clean a Drip Coffee Maker

Hard water stains on your coffee pot are not attractive, and the deposited coffee oils and gunk can make your cup of joe taste bad too. To clean a drip coffee maker follow these steps:

1.) Fill the coffee carafe with a 1:2 ratio of white vinegar to water. Pour it into the reservoir of the coffee maker.

2.) Put a filter in the coffee maker as usual.

3.) Run the coffee maker, letting it go through its normal cycle.

4.) Turn the coffee maker off. Allow the liquid to cool 15 minutes.

5.) Discard the vinegar water and hand wash the carafe and filter basket.

6.) Repeat a second time.
