If you absolutely hate wasting time on cleaning appliances – don’t worry, your coffee maker is really easy to clean!
How to clean a coffee maker?
Obviously, you can’t throw it in the dishwasher nor can you wash it in the sink.
So how to do it? Start with rinsing the carafe and removing any remaining coffee grounds.
Then mix vinegar and water (equal parts) and fill up the water chamber. Start a brew cycle and turn the coffee maker midway. Leave the mixture for an hour so that it can clean and disinfect your coffee maker.
Then run the rest of the cycle. Once it is complete remove the water and vinegar mixture and add clean water to the chamber. Run another brew cycle.
Once you are done with that wipe the exterior of the appliance.
