How to Clean a Glass Coffee Pot
Do you want to keep your glass coffee pot looking and working like new? Cleaning it regularly is the key. Here’s everything you need to know to keep your coffee pot sparkling clean:
Things You’ll Need
- Warm Water
- Mild Dish Soap
- Lemon Juice
- White Vinegar
- Soft Sponge
Step 1: Clean it with Mild Soap and Water
Start by filling your glass coffee pot with warm, soapy water. Let it soak for at least 30 minutes. Using a soft sponge, scrape away any grounds clinging to the pot. Rinse it out with clean water and lay it out to dry.
Step 2: Use Lemon Juice and Vinegar to Remove Stains
If there are any stubborn stains, mix equal parts of lemon juice and white vinegar with warm water and pour it into the coffee pot. Let it sit for about 30 minutes before scrubbing it gently with a soft sponge. Rinse it out with clean water and set it out to air dry.
Step 3: Deodorize It
If the coffee pot has a musty smell, fill it with warm water and add 3 tablespoons of baking soda. Let it soak for 15-20 minutes then rinse and let it air dry. Repeat this process as necessary.
Step 4: Dry it Fully
Before making your next cup of coffee, make sure to fully dry the coffee pot. Leaving any moisture in it can lead to bacteria growth and spoil the taste of your coffee.
Keeping your glass coffee pot clean and sparkling is easy with these simple steps. Remember to always use mild soap, warm water and a soft sponge to get the best results. With regular cleaning, your coffee pot will last longer and keep your coffee tasting great.
