I love coffee! I am so thankful for our Keurig! When we first got it, I only made ice coffee. I was not a hot coffee drinker. These days, I find myself making hot coffee! I did not start drinking coffee until I started working full time. Now that I am a stay at home mom, I still love my coffee.
To save money and the environment, we have a reusable K-Cup. This way, we can buy coffee in bulk.
I also use our Keurig to brew hot water for tea!
A few days ago, I read that we should be cleaning our Keurig every 3-6 months. We have had our Keurig for over two years and decided to clean it this weekend. Thankfully it only takes 15-20 minutes to clean.
All you need is white vinegar.
Here is how you can clean your Keurig in 3 Steps:
1. Remove all parts that can be removed. I washed the tray and inside where our K-Cups go. There are a lot of nooks and crannies. Clean as much as you can and keep cleaning as you see fit.
2. Add a splash of white vinegar to the water chamber and run several cycles.
3. After brewing a few cups of water and white vinegar, I poured the water out of the chamber and replaced with fresh water.
I ran the Keurig a few more cycles to be sure.
Cleaning our Keurig is super easy and it will be worth it when you are done! The pipes will be clean and hopefully your coffee will taste a bit better!
Now that our Keurig is clean inside and out, our machine runs like new!
