If you have a Keurig you need to make sure you’re doing this one important thing to keep you from ingesting harmful mold!

A lot of people love Keurig for it’s convenience and ease making a delicious cup of coffee. But how healthy is it really? Yes, I know… EVERYTHING is unhealthy! But better to be informed before making choices than to blindly partake in every unhealthy thing.

That water that can’t be dried inside of the Keurig is just asking for trouble!

From To The Death Media:

The internal tank as well as the rubber tubing can’t be drained, so it is very possible that bacteria and mold live inside the hidden water tank. The black rubber ring in the bottom of the exterior water container is another mold-magnet. A slick biofilm is formed by bacteria when grown in moist and dark places. The coffee bean’s antibacterial action is not enough to kill the microbes which float through the system. A research shows that this is only 50% effective in killing bacteria, like Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococcus mutans, and molds.

One commenter said that she does this one important thing regularly:

“Yep…clean it with white vinegar once a month. Also use distilled water for basin. Love my Keurig…I can see the concern if it is not maintained properly.”

If you love your Keurig too, don’t worry! There are steps you can take to make sure every cup of coffee is safe to drink. Just like anything you use for your food and drinks, you need to make sure that it’s kept clean and sanitary. There are millions of Keurig users who love their machine. Just use common sense and keep it clean!
