Cleaning a Glass Coffee Pot
On Regular Basis
Coffee makers usually last long, but only if you maintain them properly. Cleaning your glass coffee pot on a regular basis will help ensure that you are able to enjoy the perfect cup of coffee every day. Here’s how to keep your glass coffee pot clean:
- Rinse the pot after each use: After each brewing session, rinse the pot with warm water to remove any residual grounds. This will help to keep the pot from staining over time.
- Wash the pot with soap and warm water: Every couple of weeks, you should wash the pot with hot soapy water. Use a soft cloth and scrub away any dirt or residue. Don’t use harsh chemicals or abrasive materials to clean the pot.
- Sanitize the pot with white vinegar: Fill the pot with water, add a few tablespoons of white vinegar and let it sit overnight. This will help to remove any bacteria or mold growing in the pot. Rinse it out the next morning with fresh water.
- Dry the pot thoroughly: Once you have cleaned the pot, you should dry it off thoroughly with a soft cloth. You don’t want to leave any moisture in the pot as this can lead to bacteria growth and unpleasant smells.
If your glass coffee pot is stained from extended use, you may need to do a deep clean. Here’s how to deep clean your glass coffee pot:
- Mix a scrubbing paste: Mix together a paste of baking soda and water. This will help to remove any stubborn stains or buildup that may have accumulated over time.
- Scrub the pot with paste: Scrub the inside of the pot with the paste, making sure to reach any crevices and hard to reach spots. Use a soft cloth to ensure that you won’t scratch the glass.
- Rinse the pot with vinegar: Fill the pot with vinegar and let it sit for a few hours. Rinse the pot out with clean water and then dry it off with a soft cloth.
- Polish with lemon juice: If you want your glass coffee pot to sparkle, you can polish it with a few lemon wedges. Rub the lemon wedges over the pot and then rinse it with water.
By cleaning your glass coffee pot regularly, you can ensure that you enjoy the perfect cup of coffee each and every day. A deep clean once in a while will also help to keep the pot in pristine condition.
