Clean That Coffee Maker!

Nothing is worse than taking a sip of much needed coffee in the morning only to find that it tastes awful and stale. This can be one of two things, you either have bought a bad bunch of coffee, or you simply need to clean that filthy coffee maker.

In order to do this you need:

  • White vinegar
  • water
  • coffee filter (or built in filter)
fill the coffee maker up with equal parts vinegar and water, then brew once more with plain water to rinse the vinegar from the coffee maker. You may have to do this more than once, but it will clean all of the yucky hard water buildup inside the coffee maker.
