I found a goodie...

I've been looking for a good cleaner for my coffeemaker. It is a dispenser type, dispensing coffee into the cup. The metal plate inside is always nasty looking, even after cleaning. So, one day I decided to try dishwasher soap. It's not really a soap, but works wonders. I've even used it on smelly dishrags. I soak them in a small container with a good squirt of dishwasher fluid, and they come out so clean, but are very slick feeling, so take a good rinsing. I use the dishwasher soap full strength in the coffee maker and rinse well. I have not run the coffeemaker thru it's cycle with this soap, just to clean the reservoir, by hand. Give it a try, let me know what you think. I'm always trying to downsize my cleaning products, they take up so much space, so dual use is important to me.

It makes sense. If it works in the dishwasher, it should work outside the dishwasher.
