I've used vinegar in the past for all of my brewer descaling and it has worked satisfactorily. However, vinegar is not a product I keep around that often, it smells when it's used in a descaling situation and it takes up a lot of room if stored. That said, vinegar does work ... but I like these Cleancaf packets better.
Pros: they are small, easy to use, and this purchase gives you 9 uses.
Cons: is an irritant, may be more costly than vinegar
I believe a reviewer mentioned a "blue" color so that one could tell if the product was through the system adequately. For me, this was not the case. The color was cloudy white, not blue. But after several runs through my Keurig, it worked.
My method of use:
1) I have a Keurig B70 Single-cup K-cup brewer. I used a large Pyrex Pyrex Prepware 1-Quart Measuring Cup, Clear with Red Measurements measuring cup to prepare the mixture and catch the mixture.
2) After I prepared the mix in warm water, I poured it into my Kuerig water reservoir and ran it through cup cycles (about 4 of them).
3) I thoroughly rinsed the water reservoir and used clean water to run through more cup cycles on the machine. Using my Pyrex, I could watch the water become clearer and clearer.Read more ›
Things I like:
Dissolve in 4 cups of water, pour in coffeemaker. Dissolves easily.
Run through the coffeemaker, then wipe and rinse parts. I said "wipe", not "scrub"! First one I ever used that I could do that. I was very impressed.
Two subsequent run throughs with clear water. The cleaner is tinted with a blue color, so that you can see if you have got it all rinsed out.
Then you are done. That's it. No more muss, fuss, or mess.
It does say to use it once a week. I find once a month is plenty for us, but that would depend on coffeemaker usage. Fabulous product.
I followed the instructions on the package, ran it through the machine and steam wand, and ran a couple of liters of water through afterward to flush the rest of the chemicals out, and it made my espresso machine almost like new! It pumps out water like it used to and I can pull a shot of coffee in a normal amount of time again!
I ran the cycle as directed, and then ran 3 more full fresh tanks of water in the machine. When I then tried making a cup of cofee, the machine did not even work anymore. Nothing came out! I removed the cofee insert and ran the machine, and this time it worked, but it took 5 minutes for half a cup of hot water to come out and then it quit before it could even finish one cup. Also the "DESCALE" indicator came on after using this cleaner, which never appeared before! I cleaned the machine with vinegar cycles and have run dozens of tanks of water through, but it is destroyed and still has the problems described.
Also tried this cleaner on my Delonghi espresso machine, which is only 2 months old and worked perfectly. The machine now leaks from the head after using this product. The delonghi used to produce a solid stream of espresso within 20 seconds with a nice crema on top. Now I hardly get a drip that barely comes out and no way to create any foam head at such a slow pace. It also takes a couple of minutes for one 4 ounce cup of espresso to come out, when before it took about 20 seconds. The espresso tastes disgusting because the machine's output ability has been compromised ..and also, there is the issue with the ODOR and RESIDUE!Read more ›
