Clean your coffee pot by rinsing the carafe and removing coffee and water filters. Pour a solution of water and vinegar into the water reservoir, and run a drip cycle. After the vinegar soak, replace the reservoir with clean water, and run two drip cycles.
- Prepare your coffee pot
Prepare for cleaning by rinsing the glass carafe and removing old coffee grounds and filters. If your coffeemaker features a built-in water and coffee filter, remove it from the machine.
- Fill the water reservoir
Fill the coffee pot water reservoir with equal parts vinegar and water.
- Turn on the coffee pot
Activate the coffee pot, and run a standard drip cycle.
- Rest after the cycle
After the drip cycle completes, allow the water and vinegar solution to rest in the carafe for several minutes.
- Rinse the carafe and reservoir
Thoroughly rinse the carafe and reservoir with clean water.
- Refill the water reservoir
Fill the water reservoir with vinegar-free water.
- Run additional drip cycles
Turn on the coffee pot, and run a water-only drip cycle. Once complete, empty the carafe, and allow the coffee pot to cool completely. Once it has cooled, run an additional water-only drip cycle.
- Replace filters
After the last drip cycle, drain the carafe, and replace coffee and water filters.
