How to Get Coffee Stains Off Glass Coffee Pot
Having coffee stains on your glass coffee pot can be unsightly and a challenge to remove and are usually caused by minerals in your water, build-up and age. If you want to restore the shine and sparkle of your pot, here are some steps to follow.
What You Need:
- Dish soap
- White vinegar
- Lemon juice
- Baking soda
- Soft cloth or sponge
1. Soak and Wash
Fill the coffee pot with warm water and a few drops of mild dish soap. Let it soak for a few minutes, then use a soft cloth or sponge to gently scrub away the coffee stains. Rinse clean and dry.
2. Vinegar Solution
Make a mild solution of equal parts white vinegar and water. Pour the mixture into the coffee pot and let it soak for a couple of hours. Drain it, rinse with warm water, and wipe dry.
3. Lemon and Baking Soda
Mix lemon juice and baking soda (in equal amounts) to make a paste. Rub the paste onto the coffee stains. Let it sit for about 15 minutes, then scrub gently and rinse. Wipe the pot dry.
4. Preventative Care
Clean your coffee pot thoroughly a few times a month to avoid buildup and stains. Be sure to rinse with fresh water after each use so that no traces of coffee remain.
With some effort and elbow grease, you can get those tough coffee stains out of your glass coffee pot. Follow these steps and your coffee pot will look brand new again.
