How do I clean my coffee maker?

the whole base and the pot and the inside needs a good cleaning. i heard vinegar works. cleaning it in the dishwasher just doesn't seem to cut it anymore.

  • BLEACH ~ i use about a 1/4 of the pot filled with bleach & the rest with water pour it into your coffee maker & run it thru about 3x & then run plain water thru a couple times, then everything gets cleaned :)
