How to clean glass coffee pot stains
It’s not uncommon for a glass coffee pot to build up a variety of discolorations or stains over time. Cleaning your coffee pot regularly is the best way to prevent stains from setting in. But if your pot already has stubborn hard-water or calcium deposits, use these steps to get rid of them.
What you’ll need:
- White Vinegar
- Baking Soda
- Sponge/non-abrasive scrubbing pad
- Start by filling the coffee pot with a 50% white vinegar and 50% cold water mixture.
- Allow the mixture to soak for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
- Mix 1/4 cup of baking soda with 1/2 cup of white vinegar and pour the mixture into the pot.
- Let this mixture sit in the pot for 15 minutes then scrub the stains with a sponge or non-abrasive scrubbing pad.
- Finally, rinse the pot with warm water and let it air-dry.
If these steps don’t seem to do the trick, you might want to try soaking your coffee pot overnight in a 50 percent vinegar and 50 percent water mixture. If you have particularly tough stains, you may want to use a more powerful cleaner like bleach or a specialty cleaner that is specially made for stubborn coffee stains.
No matter which method you decide to use, always be sure to rinse the pot with plenty of clean water and let it air-dry before using it again so that you don’t end up with a sour taste in your morning cup of coffee.
