  1. Pour equal parts of vinegar and water into the place where you typically pour water into the coffee maker.
  2. Click the ‘start’ or ‘on’ button and let a cycle run all the way through.

  4. Wipe down the inside to clean off any remaining dirt.
  5. Enjoy your nice, newly cleaned coffee maker! 🙂
