Here's the Smart Way to Clean Your French Press Coffee Maker
Since a squeaky clean French Press is a happy French Press, here's a quick and easy way to keep your French Press Coffee Maker always feeling tinkled pink.
How to Clean a French Press in Four Easy Steps
- First, fill your French Press about half way with water. Using a fine mesh strainer, pour used grounds into the strainer and dump the grounds into the trash or compost them. We hope you haven't been pouring grinds down your sink or commode!
- Refill your now-empty French Press halfway with water and a few drops of dishwashing liquid.
- Grab the plunger and start moving the plunger up and down inside the carafe. This cleans the sides and gets rid of coffee oils.
- Pour out the dirty water and re-wash the carafe by repeating steps two and three.
Now reward yourself for working so hard by making a fresh, hot cup of delicious French Press Coffee.
