How to Clean a Glass Coffee Pot

Using a Glass Coffee Pot

Have you ever had to resort to leaving a coffee maker to soak in a mixture of water and vinegar over night to get it cleaned? Here’s an easier and less time consuming way to keep your glass coffee pot looking and smelling fresh:

Materials Needed

  • 3 tablespoons white distilled vinegar
  • 6 tablespoons baking soda
  • Hot water


  • Process 1: Add 3 tablespoons of white distilled vinegar to the coffee pot.
  • Process 2: Follow the vinegar with 6 tablespoons of baking soda.
  • Process 3: Fill the glass carafe with hot water.
  • Process 4: Allow the mixture sit in the coffee pot for a few minutes.
  • Process 5: Using a damp cloth, scrub the carafe including the spout attached to the lid.
  • Process 6: Rinse thoroughly using only hot water.
  • Process 7: Enjoy freshly brewed coffee with your sparkling clean coffee pot.

Caring for Your Glass Coffee Pot

Cleaning your coffee pot once or twice a month is a great way to help maintain its beauty and keep it in tip top shape. Additionally, use cold water to fill your coffee pot when making a pot of coffee for two reasons: it reduces calcium build-up in the spout and it keeps your coffee pot from overheating.

And, if your glass coffee pot is getting too thick with calcium build-up, add some white vinegar and go through the cleaning process a couple more times.


Cleaning your glass coffee pot doesn’t have to be time consuming if you use the right cleaning agents and techniques as outlined above. Make sure to clean your coffee pot on a regular basis to avoid tough stains and mineral deposits, and enjoy fresh tasting coffee every time.
