How to Clean Stained Glass Coffee Pots
Glass coffee pots are a delight to own – they’re beautiful, long-lasting and easy to use. Unfortunately, over time glass coffee pots will develop stains due to mineral deposits and coffee oils. There’s good news, however – getting rid of these nasty stains is not difficult if you follow the easy steps listed below!
What You’ll Need:
- White vinegar
- Baking soda
- Soft cloths/brushes/sponges
- Container to soak pot
Steps to Clean:
- Create a Vinegar Solution: Fill a container with 1 part white vinegar and 2 parts water. The container should be large enough to fit the entire coffee pot.
- Soak Coffee Pot: Place the stained pot into the vinegar solution. Let soak for 1-2 hours, occasionally brushing the surface of the pot to help loosen stained areas.
- Scrub & Rinse: Remove the pot from the vinegar solution and scrub the stained areas with a sponge or soft cloth. Then, rinse the pot in hot water and let dry.
- Baking Soda Scrub: If the stains remain, make a paste out of baking soda and water. Apply the paste to the stains and gently scrub. Rinse the pot again in hot water and let dry.
By following these simple steps, you can restore your stained glass coffee pot to its former glory with minimal effort. For tough stains, you may need to repeat the above steps a few times. Just remember to be gentle and take your time – it’ll be worth it in the end!
