The most common acids found in your kitchen that can be used to remove mineral deposits built up  include lemon juice and vinegar. They can be applied in the similar way as store bought cleaners but for a much smaller price. Typically, a vinegar and water mixture is able to work very well. Also, the effort in cleaning a coffee maker is dependent on how greatly it has been cared for. You may well require appropriate detergents capable of removing calcium deposits if these mineral sediments built up tough on the parts of your machine.
