Comments about Reckitt Benckiser Dip-It Coffeemaker Cleaner:
Morning coffee is one of my indulgences, and making a fresh pot of coffee is one of the first things I do when I get up each day. We have a water softener, but we don't always have the unit full of salt, and our water gets very hard.
Hard water is notorious for leaving us a little gift, scale and hard water deposits. These deposits can build up on small and large appliances that use water, (water tank, humidifier, coffeemaker), and not only can it damage the appliances, but in the case of making coffee it can detract from the flavor, giving your water an off taste.
For years I have been cleaning my automatic drip coffeemakers with a product called Dip-It Coffeemaker Cleaner. This cleaner comes in a clear 7 ounce container, and the label claims that it makes for "Great tasting coffee and rapid brewing time".
Dip-It removes hard water deposits such as lime, calcium, and other minerals. It is very easy to use, you add five cups of water into your coffeemaker reservoir, then pour in half of the bottle. There is a dark blue mark in the middle of the back label, which reads "One Application", and you use this as your marking to be sure you only add half of the bottle at a time.
After the cleaner and water are added, turn you coffeemaker on and brew a cycle as usual. Be sure to put the basket in place, even though you aren't making coffee, or you will have a mess! After the cycle has completed, you then need to run cold water through the coffeemaker twice to remove any of the cleaning residue that may be left behind. (This stuff smells strong, pretty sure I wouldn't want to *taste* it.
I just cleaned my Mr. Coffee machine today with Dip-It, and the only thing that concerned me was the fact after the cleaning cycle is finished the carafe is full of boiling water and it glass is very hot. I felt uncomfortable adding cold water to it immediately, I felt that the glass might crack, so I let it sit and cool off before I start the rinsing aspect of the job.
Dip-It really does work well, and I feel that it makes my coffeemaker last longer by keeping it clear of hard water scale.
