How to Remove Hard Water Stains from Glass Coffee Pots
When you’ve noticed a white or brown film on the inside of your coffee pot, chances are it’s caused by hard water mineral deposits. This build-up is unattractive and can greatly affect the taste of your coffee. Thankfully, there are a few methods you can use to easily get rid of these pesky hard water stains.
- Baking soda
- White vinegar
- Soft-bristled scrub brush
Steps to Remove Stains
- Mix baking soda and white vinegar. Start by adding 1 tablespoon of vinegar and 1 tablespoon of baking soda into the coffee pot. Then fill the pot about 1/4 of the way with warm water and stir it until the baking soda and vinegar are dissolved.
- Let the solution soak. Place the lid back on the pot and let it sit for about 2 hours.
- Scrub away the residue. After the solution has finished soaking in the pot, pour it out, and use a soft-bristled brush to scrub away any remaining residue.
- Rinse the coffee pot. Now that you’ve gotten rid of the hard water film, be sure to rinse the pot several times to remove any remaining baking soda residue and to keep it from damaging the surface of the pot.
- Dry the pot. Lastly, dry the inside of the pot with a clean kitchen towel to ensure it’s ready for future uses.
If done correctly, these steps should help you easily remove any hard water film from your glass coffee pot.
