Using a microfiber cloth, wipe down your window or a paper towel before you start to clean. Make your own solution by mixing 1 part vinegar and 4 parts warm water in a spray bottle. Spray the mixture onto a microfiber cloth or, if it's a large window you can spray directly onto the window. Also, if you have access to newspaper it is very effective at cleaning glass without streaks. Viola!
Cleaning the coffee maker is one of those tasks that we know we need to do, but never really think about doing it and honestly, we aren't really sure how to. Have no fear, we got your back.
We know that your coffee maker is one of those essential appliances in the home. It kick starts your day. Since preparing coffee involved a high level of moisture, coffee makers can easily house mold and bacteria. The result can be; very bad tasting coffee. You might think the coffee tastes 'brunt'.
Certain coffee makers require very frequent cleaning, like a drip filter coffee maker while others need regular cleaning, especially if you make coffee everyday or several times a day.
Cleaning your coffee maker with baking soda is the best solution when comes to getting rid of coffee stains or bad odor. Just add a quarter cup of baking soda to the container plus warm water, sir the mixture together until the baking soda is liquefied because the machine may get clogged if the mixture is not dissolved. Put your coffee maker to run the mixture in a cycle. Baking soda is naturally rough but safer than harmful cleaners.
You can also use denture tables. Put two or three tables in the container, add water and wait for the mixture to dissolve before you turn on your machine. After you do that, add a table on the coffee pot and two cups of water then clean the interior and exteriors of the machine with a soft toothbrush.
Another great way to clean your coffee maker is using lemon juice. Lemon juice is acidic and similar to vinegar and will not leave a strong smell after cleaning. Fill the container to one-third with lemon juice and add water. Run on brew cycle. Once done, run another brew cycle with water alone.
Once you have used any one of these methods to clean your machine, brew one more cycle with just water to flush your coffee machine out.
Happy coffee brewing!
