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:
- Start by using the large spoon to scrape away any visible burnt or stuck on residue that has formed on your coffee pot.
- In a mixing bowl, add ¼ cup of vinegar to 2 tablespoons of baking soda and stir until it’s mixed into a paste.
- Apply the paste to any remaining residue on the inside of the glass coffee pot.
- If you would like to add a bit of extra cleaning power to the paste, add some salt and mix.
- Let the paste sit on the glass for 5-10 minutes.
- 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.
- 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.
