ACTIVE Coffee Maker Cleaner FAQ

Frequently asked questions

If you have any questions about ACTIVE Coffee Maker Cleaner, you may find the answer below. If you have any other questions please reach out to our customer service team and we’ll get back to you right away!

Yes it does! Even though you can’t see inside of your machine without taking it apart, every coffee maker develops residue inside over time. Try running a brew cycle without any coffee in the machine and look at the water that comes out – gross!

Cleaning your coffee maker with ACTIVE tablets regularly not only keeps your coffee tasting fresh, but it also helps remove harmful contaminants that can be growing inside your machine.

ACTIVE Coffee Maker Cleaner is formulated to work with all brands of coffee and espresso makers – both single-serve and drip-style multi-cup machines.

We recommend cleaning your coffee maker 2 times each month for machines that have normal usage (1-2 brews per day). Frequently used or commercial machines may need to be cleaned more often.

These tablets can be used in both single-serve (like Keurig) and standard multi-cup coffee makers. Both types of machines use similar instructions.

  1. Fill the water reserve with clean water and add 1 ACTIVE Coffee Maker Cleaner tablet.
  2. After the tablet has dissolved, run 1 brewing cycle and dispose of the dirty water.
  3. Run one more brewing cycle and dispose of the water again.
  4. Refill the water reservoir with clean water and you’re ready to brew a fresh cup of coffee.

No, you should only use one tablet for each cleaning session. If you have an extremely dirty machine, we recommend doing a second cleaning session with another tablet.

ACTIVE Coffee Maker Cleaner Usage Guide

Cleaning Your Coffee Maker With ACTIVE

Choosing the right cleaner for your coffee maker is like picking the right beans for your brew – it makes all the difference.

Put simply, you need a cleaner that’s strong enough to take on mineral deposits and coffee residue, but gentle enough not to damage your machine.

Enter ACTIVE Coffee Maker Cleaner tablets. They offer the perfect balance between power and safety, making them the best choice for cleaning all coffee makers, including traditional espresso machines.

Our coffee machine cleaning tablets aren’t just about efficiency either; they’re also convenient to use. For one thing, they take up less space in storage. They’re also easier to use so you can bid farewell to the mess and hassle of powders and other options.

Why Choose ACTIVE Coffee Maker Cleaner Tablets

ACTIVE Coffee Maker Cleaner tablets feature a blend of safe and highly effective ingredients, making them ideal for cleaning various coffee makers, including Miele, Breville, Keurig, and all other coffee makers.

The efficacy isn’t just marketing fluff either; it’s backed by customer feedback and extensive testing.

Not only will our tablets remove mineral buildup and coffee oils with ease, enhancing the taste of your coffee, but they’re also compatible with all single-serve and drip-style coffee and espresso makers.

In other words, it doesn’t matter what type of coffee maker you own – ACTIVE Coffee Maker Cleaning Tablets have got you covered.

Comparing Our Tablets to Powder & Other Options

ACTIVE’s tablets, with our scientific formulation, are designed to remove grime and scale effectively, leaving no residue or taste behind. That’s something not all other cleaners can do.

When it comes to powder cleaners, the primary drawback is their lack of practicality.

For one thing, they can be messy to handle and sometimes inconsistent in their cleaning performance. On the other hand, ACTIVE Coffee Cleaner Tablets are compact, easy to use, and deliver consistent results every time.

The Science Behind ACTIVE Coffee Maker Cleaner Tablets

The effectiveness of our tablets lies in their ability to eliminate residues, oils, and mineral deposits that accumulate within the coffee maker. This will not only enhance the performance of your coffee machine but will also help prolong its longevity.

The formula has undergone extensive testing to ensure it removes grime and scale effectively. Their effectiveness in thoroughly purging and descaling coffee and espresso machines is unmatched and helps support machine upkeep.

Ingredients That Make a Difference

The blend of ingredients found in our coffee machine cleaner tablets is both safe and effective. Citric acid is one of the primary active ingredients in ACTIVE Coffee Maker Cleaner tablets. It works wonders in loosening grime build-up and removing mineral deposits.

The tablets also include a blend of other ingredients which work synergistically to boost the cleaner’s efficacy in removing coffee residues and mineral deposits. This unique formulation sets our tablets apart from many cleaners in the market and contributes to their optimal performance in coffee makers.

How ACTIVE Coffee Machine Cleaner Tablets Protect Your Machine

The tablets are more than just cleaners, they also help protect your coffee maker. More specifically, they help protect single-serve and drip-style coffee and espresso makers by eliminating residue build-up from minerals, hard water, limescale, oils, and other substances.

By removing grime and other residue, they help reduce unnecessary wear and tear on various components of the machine.

Other benefits of our tablets include:

  • Helping prevent clogging and malfunctions by deep cleaning and descaling the machine
  • Eliminating coffee stains, oil buildup, and minerals that cause discoloration and corrosion

Step-by-Step Guide on How to Clean Your Coffee Maker with ACTIVE Tablets

Using ACTIVE Coffee Maker Cleaner on your machine is simpler than you might think. The process consists of three simple steps: preparation, cleaning, and post-cleaning care.

Preparing Your Coffee Maker for Cleaning

First things first, you want to eliminate any coffee grounds that are still inside before cleaning. That will boost the tablet’s efficiency by eliminating coffee drips, grinds, and the residual oils that may be left behind.

Next, empty the water reservoir. Using clean water helps assist the tablet’s ability to remove mineral deposits that may have accumulated inside the coffee maker’s tank and tubes.

The Cleaning Process

Now onto the fun part – the cleaning process. Simply place one cleaning tablet into the water reservoir, then fill it with water. Turn on your coffee maker and run a brewing cycle. This allows the cleaning solution to pass through the machine, scrubbing away all the grime and mineral buildup.

If necessary, you can repeat the process. But remember to dispose of the dirty water and refill the water reservoir with clean water first before running another brewing cycle.

That will ensure any residual cleaning solution inside the coffee maker is thoroughly rinsed out.

Post-Cleaning Care

After using ACTIVE Coffee Maker Cleaner, you should:

  1. Run at least one cycle with just water to rinse any residual cleaning solution
  2. Wipe down all accessible parts of the machine with a damp cloth
  3. Leave it open to air dry before reassembling

Maintaining Different Types of Coffee Makers

Our coffee machine cleaning tablets are great because they’re highly versatile and can be used to maintain a variety of coffee makers, including traditional espresso machines and modern single-serve machines.

Espresso Machines

Espresso machines, like all coffee makers, require regular cleaning to function properly.

By using ACTIVE Coffee Machine Cleaning Tablets, you’ll be able to remove mineral buildup and coffee oils with ease, which helps enhance the taste of your espresso. That way, you can enjoy an authentic barista experience, right in the comfort of your home.

Single-Serve Coffee Machines

Single-serve coffee machines, with their convenience and speed, have become a popular choice among coffee enthusiasts for a quick cup. However, they too need regular maintenance.

With our cleaner tablets, maintaining these machines becomes a breeze. Simply fill the water reservoir, drop in a tablet, and let the machine do the rest. For machines that are used normally (1-2 brews per day), it is recommended to run a cleaning cycle with an ACTIVE tablet twice a month.

When to Clean: Understanding the Signs

Recognizing when to clean your coffee maker is as crucial as understanding the cleaning process itself.

Signs that it’s time to clean your coffee maker include:

  • Visible accumulation around the pot or basket
  • Presence of off-flavored coffee
  • Decrease in coffee quality, such as weak or watery coffee
  • Bitter or gritty taste

If you notice any of these signs, it’s time to clean with ACTIVE.

Maximizing the Benefits of Your Coffee Cleaning Routine

how often should you clean coffee machine 1

Creating a Cleaning Schedule

Establishing a regular cleaning schedule will ensure that your coffee maker maintains optimal performance. Not only that, but it will also prevent the accumulation of coffee grounds and oils, therefore preserving the superior taste of your coffee.

For the best results, we recommend using ACTIVE Coffee Maker Cleaning Tablets twice every month.

Accessorize Your Cleaning

To enhance your cleaning routine, consider adding a few accessories. For example, filters, descalers, brushes, and cloths can augment the cleaning power of cleaning tablets.

Filters and Descalers

Filters and descalers make for a perfect pair when it comes to coffee maker cleaning. Filters remove impurities from the water, protecting your coffee machine from corrosion, while descalers work specifically on mineral buildup, enhancing the effectiveness of the cleaning.

It is recommended to replace both filters and descalers around once a month when using ACTIVE Coffee Maker Cleaner Tablets. That helps ensure the best cleaning outcome.

Brushes and Cloths

Brushes and microfiber cloths are great for the finishing touches.

Brushes help clean hard-to-reach areas, while cloths are perfect for wiping down the coffee maker, giving it a clean and shiny finish. Don’t forget to check the link between the carafe and the brewing unit as well as debris tends to accumulate in that area.

Cleaning Your Coffee Maker

As you can see, the process itself is quite straightforward; you just need the right tools.

    These tablets outperform vinegar in tackling limescale. Used it on a neglected drip machine, and was amazed by the scale it removed. No aftertaste or smell.

    Far easier than liquid descalers. Cleaned multiple appliances at once. Just add water and a tablet, then rinse. More cost-effective too.
