Is your office fortunate enough to have a coffee machine? Do you know who is in charge of cleaning it? If it’s not you and you have never seen anyone else do it, you may discover that no one is actually doing it! A coffee machine is often as an added bonus to the office but allowing grime to build up can make it more of a burden than a treat. So, what should be done about the matter? This week, we will give you a full breakdown on how to clean the office coffee machine. By the end of this article, you will no longer have an excuse to let the grime build up as everyone will know what steps to take!
Read the instructions
Appliances come with instructions for a reason, and that reason is for you to read them. So, why does no one do it? It may not be the most thrilling experience, but it will benefit the machine, and the quality of your coffee, if you know exactly how it works. If you don’t, you could risk messing things up even more so.
Forgotten ways for modern days
If the instruction manual is lost for good, don’t panic. There are ways you can keep the coffee machine clean. For example, mixing one part white wine vinegar with two parts water can create a highly effective, yet old fashioned cleaner. Run it through the coffee machine to give it a good internal clean and then rinse through with plain water.
If you have a modern coffee machine, it will likely come with a self-cleaning mode. However, this will not ensure that the exterior stays clean. From the surface to carefully scrubbing the buttons, you need to make sure everything on the outside is sparkling!
Ensure the whole team do their bit
The coffee machine is likely to be the most used appliance in the kitchen due to so many people needing their cup of Joe to get the day going. This is why it is important that everyone in the office does their bit to keep it clean and in top shape. If you have a cleaning rota, add it to the list. If you don’t perhaps it’s time to consider making one!
