Cleaning is such a chore, so we turned to Handy, the leading platform for house cleaning services, to hear from their pros on the best tips for cleaning your coffee pot.

This quick, 30-second video shows you how:


  1. Distilled white vinegar
  2. Clean water
  3. Coffee pot


  1. Fill your coffee pot’s reservoir with vinegar
  2. Start running the vinegar through a cycle. Stop halfway
  3. Let your machine sit for 30-60 minutes (depending on how long it’s been since you cleaned it!)
  4. Turn the coffee machine back on and complete the cycle
  5. Toss the vinegar and flush out your pot by running 2 cycles of water through
