How to Clean Glass Coffee Pot Stains
Drinking coffee from a glass pot can be a great experience, but glass can be difficult to maintain in tip-top condition due to the accumulation of nasty stains. Fortunately, it’s relatively easy to clean your pot and remove any built-up residue. Here’s a guide on how to clean glass coffee pot stains.
Things You’ll Need
- Baking soda
- White vinegar
- Clean sponge or brush
- Dish soap
Step 1: Pour a Mixture of Vinegar and Baking Soda
Start by pouring a mixture of equal parts vinegar and baking soda into your glass coffee pot. Leave the mixture to sit for at least an hour to give it time to break down the stains.
Step 2: Scrub the Inside of the Pot
Tips the mixture down the sink then use a clean sponge or brush to scrub the inside of the pot. Make sure to scrub in all the crevices and corners.
Step 3: Rinse and Refill
Rinse the pot thoroughly with clean water, then refill the pot with a mixture of dish soap and water and let it sit for a couple of hours. This will be enough to disinfect the pot and remove any lingering odors.
Step 4: Rinse Again
Once the pot has been rinsed and left to soak, rinse it one final time before use.
- Make sure to rinse the pot several times to remove any floral odors left by the vinegar and baking soda.
- If the stains are still present after the initial cleaning, try soaking the pot overnight in vinegar and water and scrub with a brush again in the morning.
- Don’t use abrasive cleaners, scouring pads, or steel wool on the pot as these can easily scratch and discolor the glass.
Cleaning a glass coffee pot can be a bit of a hassle, but with a little bit of effort, you can ensure that your pot stays in top condition for the best tasting coffee. Follow these steps and you’ll be enjoying your coffee from a clean glass pot in no time.
