Cleaning My Coffee Pot...

8 posts in this topic

Anyone have any tips here? Before I was gluten-free, I'd use white vinegar, but I react to white vinegar despite it being gluten-free (found this out because I cleaned my coffee pot with white vinegar and am currently feeling less than stellar). What can I use that won't make me feel like $#!+...?

Heinz vinegar is made from corn.  Maybe you didn't rinse enough?

I'll keep Heinz in mind next time, I just grabbed a store brand this time. Didn't know it'd make me react at all though, I hadn't used it since being gluten-free. Maybe once I get some coffee through there a few more times I'll be good to go again.

If I clean a pot with vinegar - I think it tastes like vinegar for a few times.  I run water through  a cycle  at least 3 times to get it all out.  Its probably not gluten as vinegar is gluten-free because of how its made. And vinegar in coffee would make me feel icky!

Yeah, it's not a glutening. I feel similar, but not as severe. Plus, like you said, vinegar is gluten-free because of how it's made. Hell, I live in MI, it could be my sinuses... Sinus/allergies have made me feel like this before too. Thanks for the tip on Heinz though!

For just the coffee pot part - we have used a Magic Eraser.  Need to rinse well as it leaves a little dust.  Also, it can be hard to get into the pot

Well I do have a corn problem. I love to pickle stuff! I bet if I go look at the vinegar I use it will be Heinz ... I go to a small grocery store to get it , it is the only brand they sell. Looks like I might have to go somewhere eles to get my Vinegar ... Very informational!! TY

Try fresh lemons cut in half, rub the lemon on the inside of the pot and then add water and swirls the lemons and water around. This should clean the inside of the pot.
