How To Remove Hard Water Stains From a Glass Coffee Pot
If you find yourself with a glass coffee pot that is stained from hard water deposits, you don’t need to despair. Here is how to remove them easily, without any harsh and nasty chemicals that can be dangerous.
Things You Will Need:
- A bowl
- White vinegar
- Baking soda
- A rubber glove
- A scrubbing pad
- Fill the bowl with undilluted white vinegar, enough to submerge the stained parts of the pot.
- Put on the rubber glove and submerge the stained parts of the pot into the vinegar.
- Allow the pot to soak in the vinegar for a few hours.
- Remove the pot and the vinegar and pour it into the sink.
- Rinse the pot with clean water.
- Pour a few tablespoons of baking soda into the pot and fill it to the top with clean water.
- Put the pot on the stove and bring it to a boil.
- Once it has boiled, turn off the stove and let the water cool.
- Using the scrubbing pad, scrub the stained areas. The stains should start to come off easily.
- Rinse the pot with clean water and dry it with a clean cloth.
- If you don’t like the smell of vinegar, add a few drops of your favourite essential oil to the bowl with the vinegar.
- If the stains are difficult to remove, use a 2:1 ratio of baking soda to vinegar and bring the mixture to a boil. This should help to loosen the stains.
- Always use a rubber glove when handling vinegar.
You can now enjoy your glass coffee pot without the bothersome hard water stains!
