Cleaning Tip Tuesday: Decalcify your coffee maker.
While you should be washing all removable parts of your coffee maker with dish soap after every use, you should also decalcify your coffee maker every month with vinegar. To do so, fill the reservoir with equal parts vinegar and water, and place a paper filter into the machine’s empty basket. Put your pot in place, “brew” the solution halfway, and then turn off the machine.
After letting it sit for 30 minutes, turn the coffee maker back on, finish the brewing, and dump the full pot of vinegar and water. Rinse everything out by putting in a new paper filter and brewing a full pot of clean water.
