Day 3 & Lolas on the couch. I’ve got remedies on the stove, but what she really needs is sleep & so do I!
OK so since I posted about cleaning your Keurigs coffee maker, it’s ALSO important to clean regular coffee makers. They naturally grow molds & bacterias. We can fight these but if our daily ritual is coffee than that means a daily dose of bacteria & mold for our immune systems to fight. That daily dose adds up in our systems. This weakens us & can trigger autoimmune symptoms. Here’s whatcha’ do:
1. Fill the coffee maker’s water chamber with equal parts white vinegar and water. Using a paper filter, allow to brew until half the chamber is empty.
2. Turn the coffee maker off and let it sit for 30 minutes, then finish brewing.
3. Rinse the machine by using a new paper filter to brew a pot of clear water. Do this twice.
4. Fill the carafe with warm, sudsy water and some rice as a gentle abrasive. Swirl the mixture in the pot, then use a scrubber sponge to remove any gunk. Rinse and dry.
5. Wipe the outside of the machine with a damp cloth (but remember, this and the previous step should really happen every day).
Voila! Delicious, germ-free coffee!
So I guess Lola & I are meant to spend ANOTHER day cuddled up, she just tossed her cookies on the playground. #littleshawtyisdown
