Accidents happen, and coffee stains are one of the most common accidents in the kitchen. Here’s how to clean coffee stains from glass coffee pots in an efficient and natural way.
Step by Step guide
- Rinse with Water. Begin by rinsing your glass coffee pot with cold water. Then fill the pot with hot water and allow it to sit for several minutes to loosen the coffee residue.
- Scrub the Stains. Scrub the coffee stains with a soft brush and hot soapy water. You can also try adding a tablespoon of baking soda in the water and scrubbing with a damp cloth.
- Rinse Again. Once the stains are gone, rinse the pot with more hot water.
- Disinfect. To make sure all germs and bacteria are removed, mix equal parts white vinegar and water in a bowl and use it to rinse the pot. Then, use a soft cloth or paper towel to wipe down the inside of the pot. Make sure the pot is completely dry before storing.
- Only use a soft brush to scrub the glass pot; avoid using a harsh scouring pad as it can scratch the glass or cause further damage.
- If the stain is very tough, try soaking the pot in a solution of warm water and baking soda.
- While vinegar is an effective disinfectant, you can alternatively use a mild bleach solution to clean glass coffee pots.
Cleaning coffee stains from glass coffee pots doesn’t have to be a daunting task. With a little elbow grease and the right supplies, you can easily remove those unsightly stains and enjoy your fresh cup of coffee.
