Although cleaning a coffee maker is usually an easy task, deep cleaning it once in a while is very important as well and can have some tricks. Cleaning a coffee maker thoroughly can make a great difference on the quality of the coffee you have since it would not be affected by impurities such as old oils and hard water deposits. It is important to have in mind that it is recommendable to do a deep cleaning to the coffee machine on a monthly basis.

One of the best and easiest ways to clean a coffee maker thoroughly is with a mixture of vinegar and water. Cleaning a drip coffee maker with two parts of water and one part of vinegar would allow you to get rid of all impurities the device might have accumulated when it was used many times.

Once you have mixed two parts of water and one part of vinegar, you should put it in the coffee machine's water reservoir and then turn it on and wait until it runs through it completely. Once it has finished, turn the coffee machine off, and once it has cooled throw the mixture down the drain.

If you have never cleaned your coffee machine thoroughly before or it has been a long time since the last time you did, you could repeat the process, since there might still be some impurities left after the first round. Once you have finished with this step, it will be time to clean it with water in order to make sure there is not any vinegar left in it.

In order to make sure of cleaning all the vinegar from the coffee machine, you should start by washing the coffee pot thoroughly with warm water. After this, you should fill the water reservoir with water and turn the machine on. Once the water has finished running through, wash the pot and repeat the process one or two times, until you are sure there isn't any vinegar left. Remember waiting for the coffee machine to cool down between one rinsing process and the other.
