If you want to learn how to clean a Keurig needle, you can either get the manual or the K-Cup holder.
Either way, cleaning a Keurig product is not much different than cleaning any other brand of product. What makes it different though is the type of plastic used in the body of the device.
Read on to find out how to clean a Keurig needle and where you can buy the cleaning supplies for cleaning your Keurig.
How to Clean Keurig Needle?
Let’s start with the Keurig needle. The first thing that you need to do is remove the small black rubber ring from the plunger in the bottom of the holder.
After this, remove the needle from the cleaning tray. You can use a screwdriver or other suitable tool to remove the rubber ring.
When you have taken them off, you can now clean the needle by spraying the cleaning solution into the tip of the needle and working the solution into the cleaning reservoir.
Once you have sprayed the cleaner on the reservoir and then onto the needle, wait for a minute before removing the rubber stopper from the reservoir. This ensures that all the cleaning solution is absorbed by the product.
After that, use the paper towel to wipe the excess solution from the Keurig.
When you are done, you can now rinse the entire surface with water and dry it thoroughly.
Now for the cleaning supplies. To clean the body of the needle and the rubber tubing, you need to use the same type of cleaner you used to clean the rubber ring.
Apply the cleaner onto the entire surface of the product and allow it to sit for at least five minutes.
Once the cleaner has set for five minutes, wipe the entire surface with paper towels to remove any remaining residue that remains after using the cleaner.
Next, you will need to use the cleaning supplies to clean the cleaning tool itself.
Using the cleaning brush on the Keurig’s body, gently scrub the body until the outside edge is clean and smooth.
Once the outside edge of the body is clean, you can continue cleaning the whole supply.
However, as mentioned earlier, you should only use the cleaning brush once the reservoir has been completely emptied.
Once this step is completed, you should also check the cleaning supply for any debris inside. If you find any, you will need to replace it with another cleaning supply.
If you find it hard to remove the debris, you should place the needle in the dishwasher to be washed.
While the needle is inside the dishwasher, you should run the dishwasher on a cycle with the lowest water setting. This will effectively wash the supply and the cleaning supplies.
The dishwasher will also agitate the cleaning supply to help remove any hard or stubborn stains on it.
While running the dishwasher, you should constantly monitor the pressure to avoid over-watering the system.
You can determine the level of the pressure from the warning light that will be located on the top of your Keurig brewer.
The last step in learning how to clean Keurig needle? Once you have cleaned the supply and the cleaning supplies, you can now insert them back into the brewing system.
The first thing you should do is to check the warning light again. If you notice this light still not flashing, then you should add a small amount of baking soda to the reservoir.
This will keep the Keurig needle-free from hard deposits and keep your coffee maker working at its full potential.
Learning how to clean a Keurig is not a difficult task. There are many videos available online if you would like to see how to do it in person.
To get the absolute best results out of your coffee brewer, you should always follow the manufacturer’s instructions when it comes to cleaning and maintaining it. Following their recommendations will ensure that you and your family are drinking the freshest coffee possible at all times.
