How to Clean Burnt Glass Coffee Pot

Making coffee can often mean burnt and sticky residue is left on the glass coffee pot. If your coffee pot is looking a bit worse for wear, have no fear as you can have it looking like new in no time with a few household items.

What You’ll Need:

  • White vinegar: Use the regular white vinegar found in your pantry.
  • Baking soda: Use a small box of baking soda.
  • Large spoon
  • Salt: Mainly iodized table salt, unless you are wanting to add some to the mixture for an extra cleaning boost.
  • Scrub sponge or brush: A sponge or plastic brush with medium bristles is best and should not have any metal to scratch the glass.

Cleaning the Pot:

  1. Start by using the large spoon to scrape away any visible burnt or stuck on residue that has formed on your coffee pot.
  2. In a mixing bowl, add ¼ cup of vinegar to 2 tablespoons of baking soda and stir until it’s mixed into a paste.
  3. Apply the paste to any remaining residue on the inside of the glass coffee pot.
  4. If you would like to add a bit of extra cleaning power to the paste, add some salt and mix.
  5. Let the paste sit on the glass for 5-10 minutes.
  6. After the paste has done its job soaking any remaining residue, take a sponge or scrub brush and scrub away the paste in circular motions around the inside of the pot.
  7. Rinse the pot with warm water and wipe it down with a clean cloth or towel.


  • Vinegar and baking soda can be abrasive, so be careful to not scrub too hard.
  • Always check the manufacturer’s instructions to check the recommended cleaning methods.
  • For heavy burnt residue on the pot, you might need to repeat the process a few times until it is gone.

By following these steps you can easily remove stuck on, burnt residue from a glass coffee pot. With some vinegar and baking soda you can restore your glass pot back to its original shine.
