OK, so I have this really nice coffeemaker that I have neglected to clean. I use it regularly enough but on a whim decided to inspect it. Lets just say that I wasn't pleased at what I've been drinking lately.
I've used three methods of cleaning coffeemakers in the past;
running a solution of lemon juice through a cycle then flushing with a cycle of water,
running straight white vinegar through a cycle then flushing with a cycle of water,
and running a bleach solution through followed by several cycles of water to flush the chlorine.
Of course the last is only used when I am fearful of the science project mutating me and turning me into **Caffeine Man!
So, a question for the brightest and best I've found online, biker sites just don't tend to have Mensa candidates, do you have any reputable methods of killing germs in a reservoir that cannot be scrubbed all without killing the poor fellow intent on drinking from that cistern?
