Why use Cleancaf®?
Without proper cleaning, oily residue will build up in your coffee machine leading to bitter tasting coffee. Our fragrance free cleaning powder removes build-up and leaves you with a clean machine. Traditional cleaning agents like vinegar and soap are not designed to remove coffee oil buildup and can also leave behind residue long after final rinsing.
How often should I clean my home brewer?
For best taste and performance, we recommend cleaning your home machine at least once a week.
Why can't I use dishwasher detergent on my coffee machine?
Dishwasher detergent is not ideal for use on cleaning coffee machines for several reasons: I use vinegar to clean my coffee machine. Why should I buy Cleancaf®?
1) Dishwasher detergent is not intended to rinse quickly and could leave a soapy residue inside your machine.
2) Dishwasher detergent is usually not flavor neutral. As a result, if there is any residue left behind, it is likely to add fragrance to the taste of your coffee.
3) Some dishwasher detergents may contain ingredients which will react poorly with the interior surfaces of your machine and could cause damage.
Vinegar is a weak acid that will not clean away coffee oil. We recommend using Cleancaf® to eliminate coffee oil residue and Dezcal to break down lime scale build-up.
What is the difference between Cleancaf® and Dezcal™?
Cleancaf® is specially formulated to eliminate residual coffee oils and build-up in your machines. Weekly use will keep your coffee tasting fresh. When used regularly, it will also act as a scale inhibitor preventing the accumulation of scale build-up on the internal parts of the machine.
Dezcal™ is specifically designed to remove limescale. This citric acid based, non-toxic descaler breaks down even the toughest limescale and calcium deposit build-up. Regular use of Dezcal™ will help extend the life of your machine and ensure consistent beverage temperature.
Can I eat or drink this product?
Cleancaf® is an alkaline based cleaner. Much like any automatic dishwashing detergent, countertop cleaner, or other kitchen cleaner, this product is not intended to be consumed. When Cleancaf® is used according to the stated directions and rinsed properly there is no risk of consumption of the product.
