Old stains and baked-on coffee can greatly impact the taste of your brew, not to mention they are an eyesore. Here are a few tricks to get your coffeepots to sparkle.
- Lemon juice — add a cup of lemon juice to the glass pot, fill with cold water, and soak overnight. The next morning, wipe the inside of the pot with a paper towel or soft brush.
- Vinegar — mix two cups of white vinegar and two cups of water in your pot. Gently mix the solution around in the pot until the stains dissolve. You can add two tablespoons of baking soda for the more difficult spots.
- Salt, baking soda and ice — fill the pot with crushed ice, two tablespoons of salt and two tablespoons of baking soda. Swirl the mixture in the pot to scrub off nasty stains.
