Bar Keepers Friend Coffee Maker Cleaner

Once you’ve descaled, the last thing you want is for that perfectly brewed coffee to run thru a soiled coffee maker, and into a soiled carafe or thermos. Cofee brewers, carafes, and thermoses absorb the oils, tannins, and soil build-ups that accumulate from continuous brewing. Eliminate them with BKF Coffee Cleaner!

How to Use Bar Keepers Friend's Coffee Cleaner

Thermoses, Carafes, or Travel Mugs

  1. Prepare the cleaning solution by adding 1 oz. of Bar Keepers Friend Coffee Maker Cleaner to every 8 oz. of HOT water needed to fill the vessel.
  2. Allow the cleaning solution to soak in the vessel for 30 minutes.
  3. Rinse the vessel thoroughly.

Coffee Maker, Brew Basket, and Carafe

  1. Prepare the cleaning solution by adding 1 oz. of Bar Keepers Friend Coffee Maker Cleaner to every 8 oz. of COLD water. Make enough solution to completely fill your carafe or coffee maker.
  2. Remove any disposable filter or pod from the coffee maker. 
  3. Pour the cleaning solution into the coffee maker.
  4. Place the empty carafe or cup under the coffee discharge.
  5. Initiate the brew cycle.
  6. It may take more than one cycle to empty the reservoir.
  7. Leave the cleaning solution in the carafe for 30 minutes. 
  8. Discard the used cleaning fluid, and thoroughly rinse the carafe or cup.
  9. Fill the coffee maker’s reservoir with clean, COLD water, and repeat the brewing cycle to rinse the coffee maker.
  10. Dispose of the used rinse-solution.

NOTE: For stubborn deposits, manually wipe the surface clean immediately after soaking, prior to rinsing. Gloves and eye protection are recommended. Unintended splashing may damage appliance and countertop finishes. Always thoroughly rinse any object or surface that comes in contact with cleaning solution. Refer to your brewer’s manual for additional instruction before cleaning.

Why Clean Your Coffee Maker?

Clean Your Brewer and Release Your Coffee’s True Flavor

Coffee contains naturally occurring oils and proteins, which over time, will coat your brewer, basket, and carafe. Routinely removing these coatings will improve the taste of your coffee.

Our “Natural” Oxy Acidic formula breaks down and removes build-up so that you’re smelling and tasting the best coffee possible!
