10 super handy tips for cleaning a Keurig

2. With your Keurig over a sink and the top open, flip it upside down and give it a few firm taps with the palm of your hand. This is going to once again loosen any debris that is floating around in there clogging up your coffee making.
3. Empty out the water from the Water Reservoir. If you have a
Keurig Water Filter, remove it and set it aside for now.
4. Turn the brewer off so you can get started.
5. Grab a bottle of the Keurig Descaling Solution and pour it into the Water Reservoir. If you don’t have this solution, Housewife How To’s suggests using half water and half white vinegar. Now, press the power button and turn it back on.
6. Take a large mug and place it on the drip tray. Now, you’re going to do the motions like you’re brewing coffee but without the filter in it. Lift and lower the handle, select the 10 oz brew size and press the brew button. This cleans out the pipes and tubes within the machine.
7. Repeat step number 4 until you run out of water in the reservoir. The machine will indicate ‘More water please’. Then afterward, let it sit for about a half hour.
8. Clean out the water reservoir thoroughly — rinsing with soap and water.
9. Fill up the water reservoir with clean water and do the same as you did in step 4. Without using a filter have the machine dispense you hot water to thoroughly clean the machine.
10. Repeat this step 12 times — you may have to refill the water reservoir in order to do it to full 12 times. Then, you’re done! Now, get brewing!
