How To Clean A Burnt Glass Coffee Pot
Keeping your coffee pot clean is a crucial aspect of brewing a good cup of coffee. Unkempt coffee pots can leave a bad taste and discolor your coffee. But if you have burnt your glass coffee pot, it can be quite tricky to clean. Here’s how:
Step 1: Rinse
Begin by giving your glass coffee pot a good rinse with warm water. Make sure to rinse off any leftover residue or coffee grounds.
Step 2: Soak
To remove any stubborn coffee stains, fill the coffee pot with warm water and add a few tablespoons of baking soda and a few squirts of dish soap. Give it a good stir and let it sit for at least 30 minutes up to an hour. This will loosen any burnt on residue.
Step 3: Scrub
Take a clean sponge or cloth and scrub any remaining residue, using a gentle-medium pressure. If there are especially tough stains, use a non-abrasive scrubber.
Step 4: Rinse Again
Rinse the pot thoroughly to make sure that all of the cleaning solution is gone, and then dry with a clean dish towel.
Step 5: Sanitize
For extra sanitation, give your coffee maker a thorough rinse with a solution of 1 part vinegar and 10 parts warm water, or a mixture of 1/4 cup of bleach to a gallon of water. This should help keep your coffee maker mold and bacteria free.
- Avoid Abrasive Cleaners:When cleaning your glass coffee pot, avoid using any abrasive cleaners, steel wool, or scouring pads, as these can scratch the glass and make it more difficult to clean.
- Run White Vinegar: After you have cleaned your coffee pot, its a good idea to run a mixture of 1/3 cup of white vinegar and 2/3 cup of water through the cycle to get rid of any residual gunk.
Following these simple steps should help you keep your glass coffee pot looking and tasting great. Regular cleaning will ensure your morning cup of joe is always in tip-top shape. Enjoy!
