Before you start washing the turk, make sure it has cooled down completely. A hot turka can damage your hands and reduce the effectiveness of the washing process. Remove the lid and remove any residual coffee or sediment. Pay attention to the handle - it should be clean and free of coffee or grease residue.

One of the easiest ways to clean a turk is to use detergent, and ordinary soap or powder will do. Add some detergent to the turka, pour hot water and wait a few minutes. Then, use a soft sponge or scrubbing brush to thoroughly clean the inside of the turkey.

If you want to avoid using chemical cleaners, you can turn to natural alternatives. Lemon juice or vinegar is commonly used. Simply squeeze the juice from a lemon or add a little vinegar to the turkey and add hot water. Leave this solution on for a few minutes, then rinse the turk thoroughly.

Baking soda can also be used to clean the turk. Mix a little baking soda with hot water and pour this solution into the turkey. Wait a few minutes and then use a sponge or brush to scrub thoroughly. Then rinse the turka well to remove any residual baking soda.

Don't forget about the lid of the turk. It can also collect grease and coffee residue. Remove the lid and rinse it separately.
