How to Clean a Cloudy Glass Coffee Pot

Coffee lovers rely on their glass coffee pot to provide them with a perfect cup of coffee every morning. Unfortunately, overtime, glass coffee pots become discolored and cloudy, making them less than appetizing. Even if you use a dishwasher, residue can build up in the pot due to mineral deposits and other factors. Thankfully, there are steps you can take to get your coffee pot looking clean and clear again.

What You’ll Need

  • Baking soda
  • White vinegar
  • A small cup or bowl
  • Soft sponge or cloth
  • Paper towels or a towel


1. Fill the Carafe with a Baking Soda & Vinegar Solution. Fill the carafe with ½ cup of baking soda and then fill the rest of the carafe with white vinegar. Swirl the mixture around so that the baking soda and vinegar mix together. Let the solution sit for 30 minutes.

2. Rinse the Carafe. Start by rinsing out the carafe with cold water. This should remove any of the vinegar and baking soda mixture. If there still remains a cloudy haze on the outside of the carafe, use a soft sponge or cloth to wipe it away.

3. Scrub the Carafe with Baking Soda. Mix together baking soda with a small amount of water in either a cup of bowl. Dip a soft cloth or sponge into the mixture and use it to scrub away any remaining residue.

4. Rinse & Dry. After you are finished scrubbing the carafe, rinse it out with cold water, and then dry it off with paper towels or a towel.


By following these steps, you’ll be able to clean your cloudy glass coffee pot and enjoy a perfect cup of coffee every morning.
