Cleaning the Inside of a Glass Coffee Carafe


  • A soft sponge
  • Baking soda
  • Water
  • White vinegar


  • Step One: Fill the carafe with hot water and baking soda, so it is about half full. Let it sit for 15 minutes.
  • Step Two: Empty the carafe and rinse it out with hot water.
  • Step Three: Run a few drops of white vinegar around the inside of the carafe and use the soft sponge to scrub any remaining residue.
  • Step Four: Rinse the carafe with hot water again, then let it sit and air dry.


  • Discoloration can be due to mineral deposits from the water so using filtered water or distilled water in the carafe can help prevent this.
  • Acidic substances like vinegar can cause pitting and weakening of the carafe’s surface, so don’t leave the vinegar in the carafe for more than a few minutes.
  • Be sure to unplug the carafe from the wall before cleaning, and be careful not to burn yourself with the hot water.
