How to Clean a Glass Coffee Pot with Vinegar
Coffee makers are great, but without proper cleaning, coffee residue can build up and leave your coffee tasting less than ideal. That’s where vinegar comes in: it’s a natural, safe way to clean each type of coffee maker so you can get it running like new. Here’s how you can use vinegar to clean a glass coffee pot.
Things You Will Need
- White Vinegar
- Soft Cleaning Cloth
- Scouring Pad
Step 1: Fill and Soak
The first step is to fill your glass coffee pot with a solution of equal parts vinegar and water. Depending on the size of your coffee pot, you’ll need about 1 cup of vinegar and 1 cup of water. Let the pot sit in the mixture for about 1 hour.
Step 2: Scrub and Rinse
Once the solution has had time to soak, give the pot a gentle scrub with a scouring pad. Be sure to scrub away any residue that has built up in the pot. Once you’re done, rinse the pot with warm water and a soft cleaning cloth.
Step 3: Refill and Brew
When the glass is clean and dry, fill it up with fresh water, replace it on the coffee maker, and turn it on. This should flush any leftover vinegar from the pot and help restore the flavor of your coffee.
And that’s it! With just a few simple steps, you can keep your glass coffee pot clean with vinegar. Now all that’s left to do is sit back, relax and enjoy your freshly brewed cup of coffee.
