Almost everyone who owns a Keurig swears by it. But, just as many people probably have no idea how to clean it.
We rely on these machines every day, often multiple times a day. And over time, the water reservoir accumulates buildup, as do the pipes and tubes. Keurig suggests that you clean — or descale as they call it — every 3 to 6 months to keep it running smoothly. The buildup isn’t bad for you, but it will eventually ruin your Keurig if you don’t take care of it.
We’ve combined the recommended steps from the manufacturer here to ensure you clean your machine properly, as well as a few alternative tips from experts and fellow Keurig users. Here are the 10 tips you need to know!
