How to Clean a Coffee Maker Reservoir

The best way to start each month is with a clean coffee maker reservoir for optimal coffee enjoyment.

I follow the directions from the owner's manual for a once-a-month vinegar cleaning, which I have scheduled for the first weekend of every month and is finishing up while I post this.

This is the best video I found on YouTube that shows the step-by-step process of cleaning a coffee maker reservoir to see how it is done.

Always refer to the owner's manual for cleaning instructions.

I keep the manual stored with the coffee filters in a drawer directly under the coffee pot. So it's right where I need it but it's not in the way, and I never lose it because it is kept in its designated place where it belongs.

If there is no owner's manual, search online for the make and model of the coffee pot with the word 'owners manual' attached; the make and model information can be found on the back or bottom of the coffee machine depending on the brand.

Happy cleaning!
