Have you noticed that your coffee made in your coffee maker turned out to be more bitter suddenly? Well, that’s something familiar to everyone, but most people are unable to find the real reason behind this, and they blame the quality of beans. Before thinking of changing your beans or throwing the old one, I would recommend watching deeply into your stainless steel pot of the coffeemaker. If you notice a yellowish layer inside the coffeemaker, it’s not your bean causing the problem but the coffeemaker needs to be cleaned.
The yellowish layer is basically the mold growing inside the pot and thriving because of the coffee’s chemicals. Coffee does promote the growth of molds. Proper coffeemaker cleanings can get you out of this situation. To remove the molds properly, you need to wash the inside of your pot with baking soda.
Soda is used to eliminate the coffee residual and the things frosting due to coffee inside the pot. Baking soda is abrasive on the clogged residue within the coffeemaker. It’s safer to use as well. It doesn’t deteriorate the interior of the pot as is done by many harsh or chemical-filled cleaners. It is used to clean your coffee maker using simple steps.
Steps To Clean A Coffee Maker With Baking Soda?
Proper cleanings can be proceeded by taking care of each and every detail of the given procedure. Baking soda will help you clean inside your pot until you see that the steel from inside and outside of the pot is crystal clear and alike.
- You need hot water for thorough cleanings. Fill a saucepan with water and put it on the stove until it’s boiling.
- Take a cup full of baking soda and add the soda to your stainless steel pot.
- Take the boiling water and start pouring it into the pot, which has baking soda in it. You will see the reaction of water with soda would cause the water to evaporate rapidly.
- Keep on adding water, and let the chemical reaction happen in the pot.
- When the pot is filled with water completely, cover the pot with the lid. Seal tight and leave it for half an hour.
- After this time, uncover the pot and pour out the liquid into the sink. You will see pieces of the residual that were being accumulated within the pot for so long. Pour out all the liquid, and the residual components would be removed.
- Have a quick, clear view from inside of your coffee maker. There may be some residual still stuck to the bottom or sides. You can scrub those pieces off by gently scrubbing the pot.
- Wash the pot from inside. Rewash it using a dish wash soap. Dry clean it, and it’s ready to use.
Make an aromatic cup of coffee with your newly cleaned pot, and you would notice a fresh taste of your coffee. The mold inside can change the taste of your coffee, which you can regain by the thorough cleanings of the pot with baking soda.
