Take 1 cup of water and mix it with 1/4 cup of baking soda and use this solution to run through your drip coffee machine. You will want to run it through the coffee machine once without a filter. After rinsing the coffee pot out, you will want to run plain water through the coffee machine 2 or 3 times more in order to clean out any leftover solution or build-up in the machine. After this is complete, you can use your drip coffee machine once again as before. It is recommended this solution to be run through once per week, but you will have to use your own discretion depending on how often you use your machine.
