You know that I love my tea. I enjoy probably three cups every day. I start each day with a hot, steamy cup of Bigelow Plantation Mint. I brew it in my handy-dandy Hamilton BeachThe Scoop®. I love this Single-Serve Coffee Maker…however, I use it to brew my tea.
I noticed some residue in the brewer recently and needed to clean it. We have a water softener in the new house. It uses sea salt to filter the water and me thinks it also is the root of my residue. I also believe I could not be experiencing the full flavor of my beloved tea. Here is what it looked like…
Cleaning My Tea / Coffee Brewer Organically
I am not about to use some harsh cleaner in my brewer. I need to use some of my Grandmother’s tricks – vinegar and baking soda were her go to cleansers. I used vinegar..
I made a solution of half water and half vinegar. I filled the well of the brewer to the top and ran it like I usually would.
Then I ran another brew cycle with clean water. I did reserve the vinegar mixture to clean my kitchen appliances…I hate to waste anything.
As you can see below the insides look as nice as the outsides now…
