Excellent cleaner My coffee pot is sparkling! Thanks so much, I used to use salt and ice cubes, not any more!

Good cleaner, but it took five carafes of water to clear out the baking soda. I've been using vinegar every week, but this works good when the pot needs a good cleaning. Probabaly will use it once every month.

This works great! I used in my Mr Coffee that has a stainless steel carafe. In addition to running the baking soda solution through the coffee maker, I put a ¼ C. baking soda into the carafe, filled it with boiling water and let it stand for 15-20 minutes. I could not believe how much gunk came out of the coffee maker and the carafe.

Used this for my Hamilton Beach BrewStation Deluxe. This formula worked as I always hoped vinegar and water would. It removed alot of grime.

This did work really well, but I had to run more than 3 pots of clean water through the machine to get rid of all the gunk. Our tea really does taste - and even look - better now! It's kind of horrifying to think of all the junk we were drinking before I used this recipe! Thank you!

This did not produce "stuff" from my machine, maybe because we use filtered water. It did get the brown stuff off. BUT, it was not worth the hassle. We did not notice a difference in taste. It did clog up my Mr. Coffee, and I did follow various suggestions. I had to put vinegar in to dissolve the baking soda, and I had to run several pots of clear water through. I cannot imagine doing this once a week, or even once a month, even though we use the machine daily.

Who says ya can't teach an old dog new tricks?? LOL, this worked great!! I'm recently retired and started a new hobby of roasting and grinding my own coffee beans. Everything is brand new except my $80 drip coffee maker. I was searching the web for a good cleaner and stumbled upon this little gem. FANTASTIC!! I too, have been using vinegar for years and couldn't believe the sludge that came out. I even used it in my stainless steel thermos I use for fishing and the results were even more incredible. I love my coffee and you guys just took it to the next level. Who'd a thunk it?? Thanks all!! : )

Works great! No clogging (thank goodness). Could not believe the gunk that came out. Makes me glad I am not a coffee drinker. What the husband does not know won't hurt him!

Seemed to work But after I used the solution it still was clogged, added about a half cup of vinegar to the 3 cups of water still in the reservoir. Took a long time to process but that seemed to do it. Took about 5 flushings of 4 cups of water each to stop getting residue.
