STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO DESCALE KEURIG WITH VINEGAR
1: Unplug the Keurig and then Remove the Water reservoir. Remove the water filter from the reservoir (if you have one)
2: Dump out all the water from the reservoir
3: Place the empty reservoir back into the Keurig
4: Fill the reservoir with pure white vinegar up to the Max Fill Line.DO NOT dilute the vinegar with water.
5. Remove the coffee pod holder from the Keurig. Close the compartment.
6. Turn the Keurig ON.
7. With a mug in place, run a coffee cycle using the largest cup size button (if you have one)
8: When the cycle is done, dump the hot water/solution down the sink
9. Repeat steps 7 and 8 until the “add water” indicator light goes on.
10: Let your brewer stand for 4 hours with the power left ON
11: After 4 hours, dump out any remaining water/solution from the reservoir, and thoroughly rinse it with water.
12: Fill up the reservoir with fresh water (up to the max fill line )and put it back in the Keurig
13: Important: make sure you complete this step properly so you don’t end up with a vinegar aftertaste in your coffee. Vinegar and coffee are not he best combo!
