Keurig nasties

Many of you have used keurig coffee makers. Some of you may even own one. Surely convenient. Little polluting. Little bit of a hassle.

We have one in the office and wife has one at home. Water reservoir is shaped such that my giant hand does not fit into all the corners. It is also clear which allows sunlight through.


Due to lack of thorough cleaning and sunlight, it is growing green stuff in water reservoir.

Many places suggest vinegar for cleaning, but I believe that only gets rid of calcium build up. It does not remove the green slime.


Any ideas other than chucking the damn thing in trash and heading to a local Dunkin Donuts? (I will never go to starbucks)
