How to Clean a Glass Coffee Decanter
For many of us, coffee is an essential part of life. And keeping a clean glass coffee decanter is an important part of enjoying a quality cup of joe. Unfortunately, coffee oils and stains can build up and make your decanter look and smell pretty nasty. To get your decanter looking and smelling like new, here’s how to clean it properly:
What You’ll Need
- Baking soda
- White vinegar
- Small cleaning brush or cloth
Step 1: Make a Baking Soda Paste
Start by mixing baking soda and vinegar together to form a paste. Use about 3 tablespoons of baking soda for every 2 tablespoons of vinegar.
Step 2: Clean the Inside
Spread the paste on the inside walls and bottom of your decanter. Use the brush or cloth to scrub everything down. This will remove the oils and other build-up from the decanter.
Step 3: Rinse the Decanter
Rinse your decanter out with hot water to remove any remaining residue.
Step 4: Let it Dry
Finally, allow your decanter to air-dry, or wipe it down with a dry cloth.
To keep your glass coffee decanter looking and smelling its best, rinse it out with hot water and a few drops of dishwashing liquid after each use. This will help remove any oils and other residue, and prevent any build-up.
By following these steps, you can keep your glass coffee decanter sparkling and ready for your next cup of coffee.
