Best on the Market!
on October 16, 2010
My mother doesn't understand good coffee. She never cleans her drip maker, and she makes the worst coffee you can imagine because of it. I decided that I'd do her a favor and clean it for her. This turned out to be impossible, no matter how many cycles of vinegar, soap, cleaners, and good old fashioned elbow grease I used on it. The urn remained stubbornly brown with a black cake on the bottom. I thought ages of coffee sludge was going to be stuck on there forever and it was ruined. I'd figure I'd have to buy my mom a new maker for Christmas and try to get her to practice some better coffee hygiene habits (fat chance).
I told a friend of mine about my failed efforts, and she directed me to pick up this stuff instead. I was skeptical, given how bad off the maker was. She was just so enthusiastic about it that I finally gave in and ordered some. Low and behold --Two cycles and my mom's drip maker literally looked like it just came out of the box! Not a single speck of cooked on oil caked on anywhere! No scrubbing! I thought I heard the Hallelujah Chorus start up when I rinsed it out the second time. My mother and I were both pleased and I was finally able to enjoy a cup of coffee at her house for the first time in years.
When I went home and ran some through my own maker that I've been using the vinegar method on for years. I even tasted a difference in my own coffee, and I've been religious about keeping my drip maker clean! Or so I thought.
Color me impressed, and that's why I'm writing this review. You can't go wrong with this stuff, even on seriously tough cleaning jobs.
