Quick Tip: How to Clean Your Coffee Pot
You know the time...when the coffee maker starts to gurgle and it takes four times as long to brew half a pot as it should?
This is what happens to ours about every six months, mainly due to hard water.
Thankfully, it just needs a cleaning. And it's easy!
Fill your coffee maker half way with vinegar. Fill the rest of the way up with cold water. Brew. Once finished, do 1-2 rinses with cold water alone. The rinses should brew MUCH faster.
I usually then do a quick wipe down just to ensure there's no hint of vinegar left.
Now you can enjoy better tasting coffee in a shorter time....without having to buy a new coffee maker! :)
So how do you keep your maker flowing? Vinegar? Something else? Do you purchase a new one?
