How do you clean a Brita water pitcher?
Wash: you have put the pitcher apart to clean them. Pour out some dish soap in warm water to produce a cleaning solution. Drench the lid and the reservoir for between thirty minutes to one hour. Then scrub each of the independent pieces until you are satisfied that they are clean, and you hear the squeak.

What are the black particles in my water after filtering? It’s just activated carbon from the BRITA filter. The granulated activated carbon is made of coconut shells. Sometimes this leads to abrasion of parts of the carbon into your filtered water.
Can you put a Brita pitcher in the dishwasher?
A: Brita pitchers are not dishwasher safe. Hand-wash pitcher/dispenser, lid and reservoir periodically with a mild detergent. Please note that the BRITA Memo in the lid is not dishwasher safe and should not come into prolonged contact with water.
