					               What Is The Best Way To Clean My 12 Cup Coffee Maker?

 12-cup coffee maker usually has a bigger footprint than small-brew coffee makers. But the great
thing is, manufacturing companies have integrated removable parts for easier clean-up. You can
remove the water reservoir, the built-in grinder if it has one, the water filter, the coffee basket filter
and so on.

So, to help you clean your 12 cup coffee maker and ensure that it stays in top functioning at all
times, here is your key guide in cleaning it:

Step 1: Remove the parts that are detachable. If you can, you should also try to disassemble
some of the parts that are not easily removable. Just install it again once you have cleaned it.

Step 2: Rinse the small detached parts using baking soda mixed with water. If you feel any
greasiness in these parts, you can scrub them off using dry baking soda. This cleaning agent is
naturally abrasive so it can take off invisible dirt, grime and oil.

Once these parts are already clean, rinse them off with water. You can also wash it after using
dishwashing liquid and water to make certain that no baking soda residues are left.

Step 3: Clean the carafe carefully. The carafe is where your coffee is stored most of the day so it
stands a chance that more coffee oil has collected inside. Start by crushing ice, place it inside the
carafe and then mix table salt. Give it a little swish to cover all the areas inside the carafe. This
should remove the hardened sediments inside.

After doing so, you can scrub it clean using dry baking soda. The ice and salt should do the trick
but the baking soda ensures that it really is pristine inside. Again wash it off with water and mild
dishwashing liquid.

Step 4: Make a paste out of baking soda and water. Dip a clean cloth in this paste and use it to
scrub the exterior of the coffee maker. Any sediments or oil that has collected outside should
come right off. Get rid of the baking soda residues using a clean, damp towel.
Step 5: Let the parts dry before piecing it back together. Take this time to inspect if there are
screws that are loose or if there are sediments blocking the spout.

Your 12 cup coffee maker is now clean and ready to be used. Just do this one a week and you will
have a smooth-sailing relationship with your coffee maker.
