Following my post about my new Senseo coffee machine, here’s a clever trick from Gina at LifeHacker for owners of similar coffee machines. Cleaning your coffee machine with a round of vinegar helps keep it free from bad stuff, and makes better coffee apparently.
Vinegar is natural and free of toxic residues. Vinegar is also a good solution because its acidic properties help to get rid of lime scale, mineral build ups, and any oils left over from brewing various beans. If you leave these things in your coffee maker you’ll not only risk breaking the coffee maker, or wearing it out, but you also risk tainting the taste of each pot of coffee you brew.
