Been Desperate to Clean Your Keurig? These $10 Pods Will Remove Residue, Stains & Old Grounds

If you hate fussing with a complicated coffee maker first thing when you wake up, spilling coffee grounds everywhere, and never knowing exactly how your morning cup o’ Joe is going to turn out, then you probably have a Keurig K-Cup machine. They’re really the easiest way to make a cup of coffee in the morning – just fill with water, pop in a K-Cup pod, and brew. But even though they’re so much simpler than a traditional electric coffeemaker, Keurigs still get dirty, and it can be hard to figure out how to clean them.

The result is a cleaner machine and better tasting coffee.

Each six-pack of cleaning pods is just $9.95, which is well worth the time they’ll save you if you tried to clean the machine by yourself. That’s enough for 3 months of regularly cleaning. Regular use of these cups will also help remove build up that could clog up the mechanisms in your machine, meaning they could help it last longer, too.

The whole reason why most of us get a Keurig K-Cup machine is because we don’t feel like dealing with the stress and mess of a traditional coffeemaker. We just want clean-tasting coffee in seconds. These cleaning cups will make sure your coffee not only tastes good, but also that your machine lasts.
