Topic: Filter Basket Smell Eradication? (46 msgs / 1823 lines)
1) From: Eddie Dove
Friends and Family,
I need help taming the smell emanating from the plastic filter basket of my
Technivorm.  I wash this thing with dishwashing liquid and hot water after
every single use.  Every morning I make two pots of coffee and before I make
the second pot, I wash everything and when I am done, I wash everything
again, but it still smells ... to me ... from a distance.  Any ideas?
Does supertaster = supersniffer?
Thanks for any and all suggestions.

Try soaking it in a baking soda and water solution.

Eddie,
Of course it didn't work. You were supposed to soak your nose, not the
filter!
But seriously, try Cafizahttp://sweetmarias.com/prod.coffeecleaner.shtmlOn 12/30/06, Eddie Dove  wrote:

At least now I can get a non-bitter cup using my Chemex or French Press!

Hi Eddie-
Two things that have worked for me in the past on differing  
situations are:
1. CLR
2. Natures Miracle odor neutralizer
Both have removed unwanted smells at some point for me.  Of course,  
you'll want to rinse it off very thoroughly before brewing the next  
pot!!  Or, you could forgo the rinsing, get some green and white  
cups, and start selling it as a unreasonably expensive "gourmet"  
blend.  Hey, it works for S*!.  Hope this helps.

If the filter basket was fine for along time, and this happened after 
prolonged use, maybe you should bite the bullet and by a replacement 
basket in a routine maintenance sorta way.

You should be able to find it at the local Target, Wal-Mart, etc.   
Like Eddie, I wasn't aware of the odor eliminating properties.   
However, we bought a cabin in Northern Wisconsin that had some major  
odor issues due mainly to the quality of the water.  That rotten egg  
smell seemed to have embedded itself in the walls of the shower and  
sinks.  After some soaking and scrubbing, the odor disappeared along  
with stains.  Incidentally, new plumbing/filters has eliminated the  
problem and we now have a nice little lake house where we spend most  
of the summer.  Nothing like a 6:00 am pontoon ride with the sun just  
coming over the trees, steam rising off the lake, deer nibbling at  
waters' edge, and a whole carafe of fresh brewed java.  Take care,  
Happy New Year to all.

PS. Go Wisconsin Badgers!

Fill halfway with really hot tap water, sprinkle in some OxyClean, and add

yeah - I mix a small amount and run it through the water reservoir.  What is
gross is that a filmy slime usually comes out from the reservoir the first
run through - and I use only bottled spring water, not sink water for all my
brewing.  I then run 2-4 clean water carafes through - until I cannot detect
any OxyClean smell...or any smell at all.
 
I also use it to clean my apparently clean thermos - the same "slime" comes
off the walls - makes my years old thermos shine....same procedure to clean
it with fresh water until I detect no odor.
 
My wife read about using in on the 'net.  I have also used Urnex and Clean
Caf - this seem to work as good or better.

Friends and Family,
I need help taming the smell emanating from the plastic filter basket of my
Technivorm. I wash this thing with dishwashing liquid and hot water after
every single use. Every morning I make two pots of coffee and before I make
the second pot, I wash everything and when I am done, I wash everything
again, but it still smells ... to me ... from a distance. Any ideas? 
Does supertaster = supersniffer?
Thanks for any and all suggestions.
Eddie

Good to keep in mind as a reference. By the way, what ratio of OxyClean to
water did you use?

Yes, the OxyClean did a good job.
Sean,
Did you make an OxyClean solution and "brew" it? If yes, why?

Jon,
When you asked this question, I had the filter basket soaking in OxyClean
again.  This morning, there was no hint of odor in the filter basket.
I still want to try the CLR just because I'm intrigued ...

I prefer using products specifically made for cleaning coffee and food
related items. The other products mentioned may be the same chemically and
may cost less, but I'm willing to pay a bit more for the added peace of

wash "...after every single use."OK, Eddie-
Something's wrong here. I just rinse the thing thoroughly right after it's
done brewing- after I empty the carafe into one of the airpots. I use a
paper filter (or not), Gold mesh and grind at 52 or 55 on BUFF grinder. No
smells left at all, or I'd run the pieces through the dishwasher. I've done
that 2 times, just on general principles.
Sometimes I sponge it out with Dawn (The mesh, basket and carafe/ funnel
cap),but usually not. Out of the 400 or so times I've brewed in the TV,
maybe I've really scrubbed it out 20 times and descaled twice. It's probably
ready for another descaling, but all I have is vinegar. Oh, well-
Cheers -RayO, aka Opa!
Seasoned equipment- don't ya' LOVE IT?

Actually, CLR lists cleaning coffee makers as one of its uses. Also,  
I know simple green is supposed to be environmentally safe and all,  
but make sure to wear gloves when using it full strength. We use it  
around the firehouse a lot and it works fantastic, but it can really  
do a number on your skin if exposed for any length of time.

A remarkably large number of people I know (including me) have a whole
