  • Clean The Coffee Maker


Unplug the machine and remove the water filter if it has one.

Wash all removable parts of the coffee maker, including the drip tray, water tank and lid, and K-Cup holder, with warm, soapy water.

Rinse thoroughly.

Clean the needle with the Keurig special tool and wipe the outside of the machine with a damp cloth.

Reassemble the machine with all removable parts such as drip tray, pod holder and omit the water filter.


  • Descale The Keurig Coffee Maker


Pour the entire bottle of descaling solution into the container and add an equal amount of clean fresh water.

Place a large mug under the spout to boil water and discard. Repeat this process until the container is empty.

Let the brewer sit for 30 minutes.

Remove the water tank and rinse thoroughly up to 10 times to remove any residual descaling solution. Replace the water tank and water filter, if any, and let it air dry.


  • Clean with vinegar


Put a 1:1 mixture of white vinegar and water in a container. Then, like the descaling liquid, run the extraction cycle until it is empty.

Leave the machine on for his 4 hours instead of 30 minutes.

After rinsing the reservoir thoroughly, refill with fresh water and repeat the brewing cycle until empty. This extra step ensures that any residual vinegar taste or odor is removed.


Similar to Keurig’s recommendations, we recommend descaling your machine every three to six months. Doing this absolutely can make a big difference in the quality of your K-cup coffee, prevent some of the most common problems with Keurig coffee makers, and contribute to the longevity and efficiency of your machine. Now that you know how fast, easy, and inexpensive it is, brew a cup today and enjoy delicious Java for years to come.
