Cleaning new carbon for filter
- Here is an idea I have used for cleaning small amounts (up to 2 cups
or so) of new carbon. Place the carbon in an automatic, drip style,
coffee maker (Mr. Coffee type) and run clean water through the coffee
maker. The hot water will wash the carbon and moisturize it. I run two
full pots of water through the carbon and it seems to work well.
Not to be redundant, but you should put the carbon in the filter in
place of the coffee grounds... Like the blonde said when her
gynecologist asked her about birth control... "I was on the pill, bit
it didn't work. The pill kept falling out!"
