      Title: Cleaning drip coffee maker
 Categories: Jolyn, Miscellaneo
      Yield: 1 Servings
 
      1 qt White vinegar
      1    Coffee filter
           Cold water
 
  Mineral Deposits and Cleaning
  
  Clean your coffeemaker at least once a month to flush out mineral
  deposits left by water that can clog your coffeemaker. Frequency of
  cleaning will be affected by water hardness. If you live in a hard
  water area, you may have to clean the coffeemaker more frequently.
  Excessive steaming or a prolonged brewing cycle are signs that
  cleaning is needed. Remove the coffeemaker from the mounting brackets
  and place on the counter to clean, since during cleaning, more
  steaming occurs than when brewing coffee.
  
  1. Pour 1 quart of white vinegar into the reservoir; add cold water
  up to the 10-cup line and replace reservoir in coffeemaker.
  
  2. Put a paper filter in the filter basket; put basket into place.
  Set the carafe on the keeps-hot plate.
  
  3. Turn the coffeemaker on.
  
  4. Let 1/2 the cleaning solution drip into the carafe, then turn the
  coffeemaker off.
  
  5. Cool for 15 minutes.
  
  6. Turn the coffeemaker on again and let the remaining cleaning
  solution drip into the carafe.
  
  7. Turn the unit off; discard the cleaning solution and filter.
  
  8. Fill the reservoir with cold water to the 10-cup line.
  
  9. Repeat steps 2-3.
  
  10. Let all the water drip into the carafe, then turn the coffeemaker
  off.
  
  11. Wash and dry the reservoir, reservoir cover, grille, filter
  basket, carafe and lid.
  
  12. Return the coffeemaker to the mounting brackets.
