Use a solution of 2 parts water to 1 part white vinegar. Run it through your coffee pot with the filter in as usual, of course using no coffee.

The best way to clean a coffee maker is using vinegar and water. All you do is mix a cup of vinegar to two cups of water and add to the part you usually put water in when making coffee. Use 2 cups of vinegar if you never cleaned your coffeemaker. Let this run through your coffee maker.

The best way to clean a coffeemaker is with a solution of white vinegar. Simply add a mixture of 50% white vinegar and 50% tap water. Fill the coffeepot reservoir to the top line. Run the coffeemaker through the brew cycle. Repeat the process with a full reservoir of water.

You can clean the pot like you would clean dishes. A good way to clean the inside of the machine is to mix vinegar with water. You run that through your coffee maker as if you were making coffee. To be sure your coffee doesn't taste like vinegar just run a batch of water through a few times.

Use a cup of vinegar to 10 cups water in the holding tank. Let the coffee pot cycle through, and repeat with fresh water until the vinegar smell is gone.

The best way to clean a coffee maker is with white vinegar and water. Add about a quarter cup of white vinegar to a coffee pot full of water and pour it into the coffee maker as if you were making coffee, then turn on the coffee maker and let all the water and vinegar mix run through.

Answer by  diva25 (4016)

You should run vinegar though the pot once or twice. After that you will want to clear it with water until the smell goes away. I have always found this to be the best way to clean the coffee pot. Be sure to get all the vinegar out or you will have vinegar flavored coffee.
