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.
I am very disappointed, as well as, quite annoyed. I tried this and it totally clogged up my coffee maker and ruined it. I can't get out the clog. I am not able to remove the hose on my particular coffee pot so there is no way I can unclog the baking soda from the coffee pot. Any suggestions on how I can get the baking soda out before I trash my $70.00 coffee pot?
This worked great for me as the recipe is written. It was horifying to see the gunk come out. Thanks for a easy, economical home care remedy.
Awesomes!!! I had always used a vinegar and water mixture, but that stinks up my little house. Icky. As gross as it sounds, there is something nice about seeing all the gunk cleaned out of one of your countertop appliances. Thanks Hadice!
This cleaned out my cheap Mr. Coffe coffee pot really well. However, when I started running the few pots of water through to flush it out it was clogged up. I took about 1 cup of vinegar and added it to the water in the well and filled up the well again and then ran it. I use baking soda and vinegar to flush my sink and tub drains and make them clean smelling again so I figured adding the vinegar would make the baking soda fizz up like it does in the drains. Not being mechanically inclined I did not want to start unhooking hoses. Worked like a charm! I ran a few more pots of water through just to make sure it was all cleared out.
I, like everyone else, was shocked to see what nasties came out during the clean. YUCK! I will be using this from now on, that is for sure!
Wow, it's amazing what comes out of your coffee pot. I clean my pot once a month with vinegar but never got this much stuff out of it. I ran several pot threw just to make sure it was clean. Thanks for the tip, I will be using this from now on.
This worked great for me. I didn't have any problems with my coffee maker clogging. I noticed a big difference in the taste of my coffee.
EWWW! I'm so glad I did this! The stuff that was cleaned out of my coffee maker was gross! Hopefully I'll remember to do this once a week. Thanks for sharing!
