How to clean your coffee machine properly

Coffee makers need to be cleaned regularly to prevent the build-up of bacteria, mould and calcium deposits. Cleaning your coffee machine can help keep it running efficiently and prolong its life.

To clean the coffee machine properly, first unplug it from the electricity supply and drain any residual water. Then use a damp cloth or sponge to wipe the outside of the coffee machine. Then pour the special coffee machine cleaning liquid into the coffee machine's water reservoir. Place the filter in the filter basket and press the start button. Let the mixture run through the cycle.

At the end of the cycle, switch off the coffee machine and leave it to stand for an hour. This will give the cleaning liquid a chance to dissolve any calcium deposits that may have built up over time. After an hour, run another cycle using only water to rinse off any residual cleaning liquid.

Finally, before switching on the coffee again, wipe the outside of the machine. This will help to remove any remaining cleaning fluid and keep the coffee machine looking its best. Regular cleaning of your coffee maker will help to keep it running smoothly for many years.

*Note: Be sure to check the manufacturer's instructions before cleaning the coffee machine, as some models may have special cleaning requirements.
