Nespresso Clean-Up: Quick & Simple Maintenance

Cleaning vs Descaling Nespresso

Understand the difference: Cleaning is regular washing, while descaling removes mineral buildup and is done every 3-6 months.

Descaling Steps Unwrapped

Start descaling mode, use a descaling solution, and run through cycles with the solution followed by cycles with clean water.

Daily Cleaning Essentials

Wipe down your Nespresso daily, especially the water reservoir, drip tray, and capsule drawer to maintain hygiene.

Milk System Maintenance

Clean milk system components after each use to prevent spoilage, mold, and bacteria growth.

Smart Maintenance Practices

Store the machine in a dry place, empty the water reservoir after use, and never submerge components in water.

Baking Soda or Vinegar? Better Not

Nespresso advises against DIY descaling solutions like vinegar or baking soda that might harm the machine.

Keeping it Natural

For a natural touch, use Nespresso’s lactic acid-based descaler and natural soap for external cleaning.

Regular Upkeep for Tasteful Rewards

Descale every 600 shots or 6 months, and clean daily to ensure a consistently delicious coffee experience.
