Vinegar soak works great on our faucets. I even take a small bottle of vinegar and soak our showerhead in a rubberbanded baggie when we stay at hotels.

Oh yea, our shower heads are a disaster Dawg. The best thing I've found to soak them is CLR.

Also, if you pop the bottom of the cup onto the spike before closing the head, you will stop the coffee from shooting up into the top spike and plugging it up. They are vacuum sealed, doing this releases the pressure.

Munky, I'm glad you finally got a cup of coffee for your sake...and the sake of those around you. You might want to keep one of these on hand in case this happens again:



We still have Himself's that he got when he first went away to college in 1966. We rarely need it since we don't have your 1st World Problem - we don't have a Keurig. Our old-school coffee maker works fine time after time. The only time we rely on the coffee cone is if I break the carafe (been there, done that twice in 40 years), or if the power goes off. With our two-burner camp stove (our only piece of camping gear left) we're never without coffee - or scrambled eggs.

One time I was sitting watching TV. I heard a bang in the kitchen and went to investigate. The carafe had exploded while full of freshly made coffee. What a mess. I was ticked off big time. I needed a cup of coffee. This was a brand new coffee maker. I took it back to the store. It seems that I was not the first customer who had this event happen. The store had just gotten a new batch of coffee makers in. I brought one home. No problems. Please don't mess with my coffee.
