Cleaning a Glass Coffee Pot

Coffee is a staple in many households, and nothing starts a day better than a freshly brewed cup of coffee. We often overlook the importance of cleaning a coffee pot, however, regular maintenance will ensure a tasty cup each time.

Things You’ll Need:

  • Dish soap
  • White vinegar
  • Warm water
  • Sponge

Step 1: Removing Coffee Stains

Fill the coffee pot with warm water and a few drops of dish soap. Swirl it around for a few seconds and then pour it out. Doing this will help break up any coffee-caused stains on the inside of the pot. Be sure to always avoid using abrasive materials and harsh cleansers, since it can harm the carafe.

Step 2: Disinfecting

Pour white vinegar into the pot until it’s about ⅓ full. Allow the vinegar to sit for 10-20 minutes before adding warm water to the pot. Swish it around, then empty it. The vinegar will help kill bacteria and disinfect the pot.

Step 3: Usage and Storage

After cleaning, be sure to rinse the pot once with warm water. This will help flush out any lingering soap or vinegar. Before filling with fresh coffee, dry the pot completely with a clean cloth or paper towel, making sure to get into the crevices of the spout and handle. To maintain freshness and extend the life of the pot, store it in a cool and dry area.


  • It is recommended to clean a glass coffee pot every two weeks, or whenever you notice a build up of mineral deposits inside.
  • Do not submerge your coffee pot in water, and avoid extreme temperature changes when cleaning.
  • If your pot is heavily stained, you can use a mixture of baking soda and water to reach a deeper clean.
