Topic: Best way to care for French Press nylon filter? (7 msgs / 104 lines)
1) From: Karl Knutson
Hello,
I realize this isn't really on home roasting coffee, but it is coffee  
related...
I have one of the nylon filters for a French Press sold on the site  
and was wondering about the best way to care for it--I checked the  
archives, but no one appears to have discussed it nor is there much  
discussion elsewhere.
So, for anyone who has one, how do you clean it?

Rinse it under water to remove all the coffee from it (at the same time as
I'm cleaning the FP, right after brewing).  Wash in dishwasher once or twice
a week.  Soak in a solution of cleancaf (i think it's cleancaf) when I'm
cleaning other coffee things, about once a fortnight.
And replace maybe once a year.
And good question.  I've been wondering what other people do with theirs.

Rinse off all the grounds. Put a couple of drops of detergent in the glass
part of the FP. Insert the plunger with nylon filter. Pump the plunger a few
times. FP is now like the agitator on a washing machine. Spill out foamy
soapy water and leave to dry.

Oh after you put a couple of drops of detergent in fill the rest of the
glass with hot water from the tap.

And probably rinse the soap off the parts of the press...

Barry,
have been using your cleaning method after every FP I've made in the last
week.  Just want to thank you for a great cleaning method.  It does a great
job of really cleaning the pot well.  Thanks.

Yes in essence you are turning the whole pot into a small washing machine.
