Cleaning the coffee maker?

Almost everyone uses one but have you ever thought about cleaning it? If so how do you clean yours? How often? Do you use anything special when you do? 

I normally run about a cup of vinegar through mine to clean it. It can even be used in one of those one cup coffee makers.

I do vinegar too. I never thought about it and then saw something about it and realized I probably should. I do it every couple of months now.

Vinegar is the easiest way to clean it (most of people buy it anyways). I know that some places sell cleaners for coffee makers though.

The only thing I use mine for is for hot water for tea and hot chocolate. I'd be happy with one of those old teapots that goes on the stove though.

I think vinegar is most popular because it's not poisonous.  Using a cleanser that's not to be consumed and you worry ... have I rinsed it all out ???  If you turn your coffee maker upside down and view the water dispenser that flows into the filter ... it's pretty gross!  Usually can be wiped down but yuck!
