  • Optional: citrus-based cleaner

Step 1: Pre-Soak with Soap and Water

  • Fill the glass carafe with warm water.
  • Add a few drops of dish detergent and stir.

  • Optional: You can also pre-soak using a citrus-based cleaner.

Step 2: Clean with Baking Soda and White Vinegar

  • Pour a few tablespoons of baking soda into the carafe.
  • Add one cup of white vinegar.
  • Stir the mixture.
  • Let the carafe sit overnight.

Step 3: Rinse and Dry

  • Thoroughly rinse out the carafe with warm water.
