How To Clean a Glass Coffee Carafe
Coffee carafes can be a great way to keep your coffee hot and your kitchen looking stylish. But like any kitchen appliance, carafes can get dirty and require regular cleaning to keep them hygienic and safe for use. Keeping your carafe clean is a simple and satisfying task, and with these steps you can keep your carafe in working condition for years to come.
What you’ll need
- Dish soap
- Baking soda
Step 1: Scrub Off Stains
To start off, place a few drops of dish soap into the carafe and fill it with hot water. Let this soak for up to an hour to soften any stains. Then, scrub off the stains with a scrubbing sponge or cloth.
Step 2: Clean and Deodorize With Baking Soda
Mix 2 tablespoons of baking soda with ⅓ cup of vinegar and add it your carafe. Leave it to sit for at least 15 minutes, as the baking soda and vinegar will work together to remove odors and dissolve any residue.
Step 3: Rinse and Dry
Rinse out the carafe and then dry it with a soft cloth or paper towel. Make sure the carafe is completely dry before putting it away.
- Regular Cleaning: Clean your carafe after every use to prevent residue and staining.
- Dishwasher: Some carafes can be safely washed in a dishwasher. Check the instructions on your carafe before putting it in the dishwasher.
Following these steps you’ll have a clean, sparkling carafe in no time. Cleaning your carafe regularly will help ensure a longer lifespan and prevent any unpleasant odors.
