Got a Keurig?   Nothing tastes better than a delicious cup of Coffee… and keeping your Keurig clean is so easy with this simple cleaning trick!



Are you ready?  It’s time to Clean Your Keurig! ;)

What You’ll Need:

What You’ll Do:

  • Remove the water container on your Keurig, and pour out all water.
  • Fill water container approximately halfway full with White Vinegar {or enough to brew 2 cycles}
  • Place a mug where you’d normally place your coffee mug, and run a brew cycle {without a k-cup}.  The vinegar will run through the machine, cleaning it out along the way!  Toss the contents of the mug down the drain.
  • Repeat by running a second cycle, and tossing the contents of the mug again.
  • Pour out all remaining vinegar from the water container, wash container well, and now fill halfway with water {or enough to brew 2 more cycles}
  • Now brew a cycle with water, toss contents of mug, and repeat brewing 1 more cycle with water.  Remove water container again, pour out remaining water, wash well…. and you’re done!  If you notice any itty-bit of residual vinegar taste in your coffee going forward, simply brew two more water-only cycles.  Easy!!

    I thought you were supposed to let the vinegar sit in the machine for a few hours or overnight to remove any scale buildup.
