Here’s Your Sign That It’s Time To Descale Your Coffee Maker!

We gathered 7 products that will help you properly descale your coffee maker to keep your coffee hot and your body healthy!

When is the last time you descaled your coffee maker? If you can’t remember or don’t know what we’re talking about, the answer is it’s been too long! Descaling is the very important process of deep cleaning your coffee maker to remove calcium and mineral deposits, or scale, that can build up over time. When you don’t take the time to descale your coffee maker, your beverages may not reach the optimal temperature, your machine may not function properly, and you risk exposing yourself to harmful bacteria and germs

 In general, you should be descaling your coffee maker at least once every three months. But if your home has hard water or residue tends to build up in your coffee maker quickly, a monthly descaling may be absolutely essential. Luckily, descaling your coffee pot is an easy, straight forward process as long as you stay on top of it. The cheapest way to do it is using a solution of vinegar and water. All you have to do is follow these steps: 

1.) Add up to 4 cups of undiluted vinegar to your coffee maker’s reservoir. The amount you need may vary depending on the size of your coffee maker. 

2.) Let the vinegar sit in the reservoir for 30 minutes. 

3.) Run the vinegar through a brewing cycle. 

4.) Complete two to three brewing cycles with fresh water or until you can’t smell vinegar anymore. 

If water and vinegar isn’t exactly your cup of tea, we’ve also gathered 7 products that will help you descale your coffee maker affordably and efficiently!
