As someone that uses a Keurig ever day, I am not stopping now! Somethings in life are just needed. Interesting article tho!
If you have a Keurig, you know how easy it is to make a cup of coffee.
A website called Healthy Holistic Living asked some important questions about cleaning the machine and the cleanliness of the K-cups it uses.
They found out, Keurigs are not able to be drained and dried entirely after use. This now means there's a potential for mold and bacteria where the water has been sitting for long periods of time.
Other problems related to Keurigs include non-recyclable pods and the use of composite plastic in the materials.
As a rule of thumb, coffee makers should be cleaned every time empty, or at least once a day. Any style coffee maker can contain bacteria and can cause coffee tastes horrible if not kept clean.
Do you have one?
