How to Clean a Glass Coffee Decanter
A glass coffee decanter is a convenient way to store and serve coffee. But over time they become stained and developed an unpleasant smell. To keep your decanter in tip-top condition, it is important to clean it regularly. Here’s how to clean a glass coffee decanter in just a few simple steps:
1. Empty the Decanter
Start by emptying the decanter of all its contents. This is best done with a funnel so you don’t lose any of the loose grounds.
2. Rinse Out the Decanter
Fill the decanter with warm water and rinse it out. Make sure to reach all the nooks and crannies with a small brush to dislodge any coffee grounds.
3.Soak the Decanter
Fill the decanter with warm water and add some white vinegar or lemon juice. Leave the decanter to soak for at least one hour to dissolve all the stubborn coffee grime.
4.Scrub the Decanter
Once the soaking time is up, you can scrub the decanter with a sponge and baking soda, making sure to get into all the crannies.
5.Rinse and Dry
Rinse the decanter with hot water, making sure all the vinegar and baking soda is gone. Then, use a clean cloth to dry the decanter.
Following these steps, your decanter should now be looking as good as new. Now you’re ready to store and serve your coffee in no time.
- Don’t forget to check the label on your specific decanter to make sure it is dishwasher safe, as some may not be.
- Don’t use any abrasive cleaners, as these can damage the glass.
- Always rinse and dry the decanter thoroughly to ensure there is no residue left behind.
- For an even deeper clean, you can use a decanter cleaning brush to reach all the hard-to-reach spots.
