How to Clean a Burned Glass Coffee Pot
A glass pot is a convenient way to make coffee, but when it has been burned, it can be difficult to get back to its former glory. Cleaning a burned glass coffee pot is a little more involved than simply wiping it down, but the process is relatively simple. With the right tools and supplies, you can have your coffee pot looking brand new in no time.
- Empty and clean – Empty out the coffee pot and clean it in hot, soapy water using a dishcloth or dish brush to remove any coffee grounds and residue from the pot.
- Scrub – Take a damp cloth or sponge and scrub the pot with baking soda to get rid of any lingering gunk and to help remove burned-on stains. For stubborn stains, use a stiff bristled brush and a paste made of equal parts baking soda and water.
- Rinse – Once the pot is free of gunk and stubborn stains, rinse out the pot thoroughly with hot water.
- Soak – Fill the pot with water and add a few drops of dish soap. Put the pot on the stove and bring it to a boil. Let it boil for 10 minutes, then turn off the heat and let the pot sit in the soapy water for 20 minutes.
- Wash – After the pot has had time to soak, wash it in hot, soapy water, using a dishcloth or dish brush to help remove any last bits of grime. Rinse off any soap residue with hot water.
- Dry – Finally, dry the pot with a clean, dry cloth and enjoy a fresh cup of coffee.
Cleaning a burned glass coffee pot may seem like a daunting task, but with a few simple supplies and some patience, you can get your pot looking like new in no time.
