How To Clean a Mr. Coffee Machine
Cleaning a Mr. Coffee machine is essential to ensure the longevity of your machine and a great cup of coffee. With regular maintenance and simple cleaning steps, you can keep your coffee maker working at its best for years to come.
What You Will Need:
- A Mr. Coffee machine
- White vinegar
- A dry, lint-free cloth
Step 1: Unplug your Machine and Empty it Out.
Safety first! Be sure to unplug your machine before beginning any cleaning. Then, empty the carafe, filter, and water tank of any liquid and grounds. Be sure to discard all the old grounds, and rinse the filter with warm water.
Step 2: Wipe down the Exterior.
Using a dry, lint-free cloth, wipe down the exterior of your machine. This will help to remove any dust and residue from the surface. When you’re done cleaning, be sure to reinsert the filter, refill the tank with fresh, cold water and neatly rewrap the cord.
Step 3: Clean with Vinegar.
Fill your carafe with a mixture of half white vinegar and half water. Place the carafe on the platform and turn your machine on for a hot cycle. Go through the whole cycle, then wait for 10 minutes before repeating the cycle. Once you’ve run it through twice, empty out the vinegar solution and rinse the carafe with hot, soapy water.
Step 4: Clean the Outside
Finally, use a dry cloth to wipe down the outside of the machine again. Make sure to remove any streaks of vinegar left behind. Your Mr. Coffee machine is now clean and ready to start brewing again.
Cleaning your machine regularly is an easy and effective way to prolong its life. If you follow these tips, you’ll be sure to have an enjoyable and reliable cup of coffee every time.
