How to Clean the Inside of a Glass Coffee Carafe

Essential Supplies

– Dish detergent
– Dishcloth/sponge
– Long brush
– Baking soda
– White vinegar


  1. Mix 1 tablespoon dish detergent with hot water and fill the carafe. Let the mixture sit for a few minutes.
  2. Take a dish cloth or sponge and wet it with the detergent-and-water solution. Wipe the inside of the carafe with the damp cloth or sponge.
  3. Use a long brush to make sure that any stuck-on residue is scrubbed away.
  4. Drain the soapy water. RInse the carafe with hot water several times to eliminate any soap residue.
  5. If there is still some residue, mix a paste of baking soda and water, spread it inside the carafe and let it sit for 10 minutes. Then use the brush to scrub the paste away.
  6. If there is a particularly stubborn stain, fill the carafe with a mixture of equal parts white vinegar and water and let it sit for about 30 minutes.
  7. Using the brush, scrub the stains away. Rinse the carafe with hot water.
  8. If you want to disinfect, mix 1 teaspoon of bleach with 1 quart of water and rinse the carafe with the solution. Rinse the carafe again with hot water to remove the bleach residue.
