How Do I Clean My Coffeepot?

Coffee pot

Mornings are overrated, but coffee makes even the roughest days seem a bit more manageable. Just like any machine, your coffeepot needs occasional upkeep to keep it running as best as it can – keeping it clean will also make sure your coffee doesn’t start tasting like a burnt mess. If you don’t have a single-cup coffee maker like a Keurig, check out our previous blog on how to keep that clean. For those of you holding on to your pots, you can clean your machine with a few simple steps:

  1. Make sure the pot is completely empty. Dump out any unused coffee, and clean out any coffee grounds from the filter.
  2. Pour in a mix of water and vinegar. White vinegar is one of the best household cleaning supplies, and it can help make your clean here simple and speedy. For a regular-sized coffee maker, pour three cups of white vinegar and six cups of water into its water reservoir. If you have a smaller pot, just keep the ratio at 1:2 and you’ll be fine.
  3. Brew the vinegar and water solution. Once your coffee maker is finished brewing, turn off the machine and let it sit for about 15 minutes.
  4. Brew two water pots. Clean out any leftover vinegar taste by brewing two pots of just water. Just like in the last step, turn off your machine and let it sit for 15 minutes after each brew.

And that’s it! Now you have a clean coffeepot. Keeping your whole home clean takes a lot more time and effort than a single appliance, and it’s sometimes hard to keep up with the mess as it continues to build up around you. At The Maids Dallas, our professional crew of cleaners will make your home look as fresh and clean as it did when it first came out of the box, guaranteed.
