It’s essential to properly clean a Keurig if you use it often, and Angela Brown on YouTube demonstrates how to clean a Keurig in less than 5 minutes. The process is quick and easy with simple ingredients that can be cleaned once after every 3-6 months. The tutorial shows step-by-step with detailed instructions and it’s super practical for Keurig owners. I think the q-tip was a helpful tip to get into the small crevices of the Keurig that may have mineral water deposits or coffee grains. It may seem like a lot of steps, but it’s quick to clean.



  • large bowl
  • dish soap
  • distilled white cleaning vinegar
  • measuring cup
  • gallon bottled water
  • bath or large towel
  • dish strainer
  • q-tips, optional
  • paper clip
  • cotton cloth
  • sponge


First, fill up the bowl with hot water and add droplets of dish soap. Remove all of the moving parts of the Keurig coffee machine such as the base and coffee catcher. Soak them in the dishwater while cleaning the rest of the coffee machine. Continue to watch Angela Brown on YouTube for full instructions and details.

Next, use the q-tip and dip it into the cleaning vinegar and go around the head where the K-cup goes inside the machine. This will pick up loose bits of coffee grains or anything that has built up. Clean around any of the small cracks to make sure there isn’t any gunk. Scrub with the sponge on the exterior and dry off with a cloth. Flush the Keurig out with the water and vinegar mixture.
