Very effective

Very good for keeping coffee brewing gear clean. Just a tiny amount mixed with hot water will have your travel mug looking and smelling new.

So good!

So powdery! Perfect texture to munch on as a midnight snack. Yum yum!

Good, not great.

I find other cleaners work better. This one doesn't dissolve as well so I don't think it gets right in there. However I'm finding it does alright as daily use and I like the biodegradable aspect of it.

Mike Wilson
It works.

I use it for cleaning the components of a Mocha Master and it does a good job of clearing off unwelcome residue left from daily use. It's worth using a cleaning product to keep coffee tasting great.

Incredible product

Leaves glass, steel, and other materials completely. Not just for use on machine -- I've used it to restore a number of old tumblers and carafes. Excellent.
