Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.

Yes, you can clean your machine with a mixture of 50/50 vinegar and water. It works very well as I have done this many times with my own Keurig machine. I normally run several cups of the vinegar and water mixture through and then follow up with 5 - 6 cups of just water to help rinse any vinegar taste out of the machine before using the machine again to make anything that I would actually drink.

Thank you for choosing to use our services here.
