How to Clean Your Keurig

Dighton Design, A Boston area Graphic Designer, teaches how to Clean a Keurig with VinegarTo create and design requires coffee…well, for me anyway.  I love my Keurig and want to keep it around a while. I learned how to clean it properly and thought you’d like to know, too.

How to Clean Your Keurig Coffee Maker

This is an explanation of the cleaning process of the Keurig Coffee K-cup Brewing Machine, to help preserve the life of your Keurig machine. This is how to clean it properly:

  1. Fill the water reservoir tank with white distilled vinegar.
  2. Turn the coffee maker on.
  3. Run the brewing process without any K Cups in the coffee maker.
  4. Run it until the water goes down and the blue light starts flashing to indicate low water.
  5. Don’t add any more vinegar.
  6. Let the vinegar residue sit in the coffee maker for 4 hours.
  7. After the 4th hour, rinse out the water reservoir completely.
  8. Fill the water reservoir with clean water.
  9. Run the brewing process without any K Cups twice through the machine.
  10. Fill the water reservoir again with clean water.
  11. You are ready to brew your delicious coffee, tea, or hot chocolate.

If your water is “hard” you need to clean your machine probably once a month. It can’t hurt the machine, but only help it. If you take care of your Keurig Coffee maker, and clean it properly & regularly, it should last you a very long time.

This Boston area graphic designer says, “Keep that coffee flowing!”
