Drink dispensers can make serving guests at dinner parties, backyard barbecues and all sorts of events in your home a little easier as a host. They also allow guests to serve themselves quickly and easily so they get what they need when they want it. The right drink dispenser can add ambiance, elegance or a bit of fun to any gathering, too.
Using a drink dispenser, whether you're filling it with ice water for a summer barbecue, or your favorite cocktail for a celebratory bash, is rather straightforward. Once the party is over and it's time to get everything cleaned up though, the drink dispenser that nobly served your guests can be a little tricky to clean until you know how to do it.
Discard any leftover beverage, and rinse out the drink dispenser with hot water.
Run the hot water out of the container through the spigot.
Fill the container with 1 quart hot water, 1 tsp. dish soap and 2 tsp. white vinegar to disinfect.
Hold your hand over the spigot and gently shake the container so the cleaner hits all sides of the drink dispenser.
Drain the cleaner through the spigot, and wipe the inside and outside of the container with a wet dish cloth.
Rinse the dispenser and spigot with hot water and allow to air dry.
