Cleaning Your Glass Coffee Pot
Tools and Supplies
- Baking soda
- Soft Cloth
It’s easy to forget that our much-loved coffee pot needs a bit of a clean from time-to-time. That sediment left in the bottom of a glass carafe can put off strange tones in your morning brew making it almost undrinkable.
We’re here to give you the ultimate guide on cleaning a glass coffee pot quickly, easily and with the most affordable products. Here’s the steps you need to take:
Step 1: Make your cleaning solution
Mix 3 tablespoons of baking soda with 2 cups of water.
Step 2: Start cleaning
Take your sponge and dip it into your solution, then start to wipe down the inside and outside of your kettle. There’s no need to be brutal, just gently rub it down and make sure any potential bacteria is removed. If the inside of the kettle is particularly grimy, let the solution sit inside the kettle for a few minutes and it should help to loosen it up.
Step 3: Rinse and wipe
Once you’ve given your pot a bit of a scrub, pour away your cleaning solution and give it a wash with warm water. It’s important to make sure all of the baking soda is gone before you continue. Then, take your soft cloth and give it a gentle wipe down paying special attention to the spout and corners.
Step 4: Descale it
If your kettle is particularly hard-water stained, pour 1 part vinegar to 3 parts water into the kettle and leave it for 30-60 minutes, which should help to break down any hard-water stains. Once this is done, rinse with cold water.
Step 5: Reassemble
It’s important to make sure your kettle is dry before you reassemble it to avoid any kind of mold or bacteria forming. Once it’s dry, put it all back together and enjoy your freshly cleaned glass coffee pot.
With these simple steps and affordable supplies, you’ll have a sparkling glass coffee pot that’s looking brand-new in no time.
