Vinegar has many uses. You can make delicious pasta salad, oil and vinegar on a sandwich is just tops, and you can make volcanoes, all with the help of vinegar. Vinegar is also a very powerful, cheap, and natural cleaner. It is great to clean out clogged pipes, as an everyday surface cleaner in the kitchen, and to get out nasty-pants stank .
I chose to clean the coffee maker with it. To be fair, coffee maker cleaner is suspiciously specific as a product and I’m lazy.
So I filled up the tank with white vinegar and pressed the “clean” button. A half hour later our kitchen reeked of hot vinegar but our coffee maker was clean. I ran a bunch of water through on the “clean” cycle afterward in the hopes of cleaning out any latent vinegar. I thought I had gotten all of it out. This morning’s cup of coffee begged to differ.
Check out those curds! Milk and vinegar-laced coffee are not friends. The coffee also smelled like a dead rat.
I made another pot (which was only 27% better than the first) and drank it along with this delightful b-fast:
Arnold sandwich thins with almond butter, raw honey, and strawberries. I hadn’t had strawberries in fo-eva. They completed me.
Get ready for some Whitney’s Kitchen show action coming soon. I filmed TWO episodes tonight! BOOM! You’re welcome, Earth.
