How to get Water Stains off Glass Coffee Pot
Coffee stains in a glass coffee pot can happen over time and be unsightly. The good news is however, the buildup of stains can quite easily be removed with common household products and natural cleaning techniques. Here are the steps on how to get water stains off glass coffee pot:
Step 1: Boil Water
Fill your pot with a few cups of water, and bring it to a boil. Allow it to boil for a few minutes to loosen up the stains.
Step 2: Wipe Down with Baking Soda
Stir a teaspoon of baking soda into the boiling water. This should create a paste-like substance. Dip a cloth or old rag in the paste and use it to rub the pot down. Make sure that the stains are covered fully and rub for a few minutes.
Step 3: Rinse and Repeat
Once you’ve rubbed the water away with the soda paste, flush the pot with clean, hot water and again wipe down, if there still is some discoloration.
Step 4: Use Vinegar
Fill the pot with a mix of white vinegar, warm water, and a few teaspoons of lemon juice. Let the pot sit for 15 minutes and then rinse with clean, hot water.
Step 5: Scrub With Salt
Pour a few teaspoons of salt in the pot and add a few drops of water to make a paste. Use a scrubbing brush to rub away any remaining stains and rinse with hot water.
