Your Keurig Manual (If you can’t find it, I will give a short synopsis of how to descale, though, so don’t panic!)
Start by dumping out the reservoir of any clean water that is leftover. Also, be sure to remove any K-cup that may still be inside. Now, go ahead and pour one large mug worth of the solution into to the reservoir. Allow the vinegar to soak in the reservoir for 30 minutes to descale and soak.
After 30 minutes, place your mug under the spout so it’s ready catch the vinegar. Run the vinegar through your Keurig repeatedly until it’s all cleaned out. My manual says to do it 12 times. I like to let the solution cool a bit before I run it through each time.
After you've run the vinegar through several times, replace the vinegar with fresh distilled or filtered water and run that through several times. You will see the water get cleaner and cleaner each time the water runs through and it will also not smell as strong the more you do it. You can't mistake the smell of the vinegar, so just keep running water through until you no longer smell vinegar. Once the water smells clean, wipe out your reservoir well and rinse your filters out good and then you are good to make fresh coffee.
