Different Ways to Clean Your Glass Coffee Carafe

As you prepare coffee every day for the following months, you’ll notice that the interior of your coffee pot begins to turn brownish. The accumulation of coffee oils causes this. The issue emerges when you attempt to clean the carafe and the stains remain. Cleaning your carafe every day after each use is the easiest way to avoid this, but everyone forgets.

Deep cleaning is the only way to get rid of the dark stains on your carafe. You can use any of the ways suggested below to find which one works best for you. It is recommended to deep clean the carafe at least once every month. But, if the carafe is in a workplace or is used more frequently than usual, you may have to clean it every two weeks.

Clean it with Vinegar and Baking Soda

To produce a paste, combine a  cup of baking soda with one cup of water. Scrub your carafe’s insides with it until they’re clean. If you have a persistent stain, use a little vinegar to start a chemical reaction that will help you remove it.

Clean it with Dish Soap

You can prevent coffee stains if you wash your carafe using soap and warm water frequently.  At least once per week, try to do this. To avoid a soapy taste on your coffee, be sure to thoroughly rinse your carafe.

Clean it with Lemon Juice and Salt

In your carafe, combine 3 tbsp of salt, 2 tbsp of lemon juice, and a cup of crushed ice. Stir it around and clean the sides with the salt and ice t as the lemon removes the stains. After that, rinse with cold water then scrub any stubborn spots with a sponge.

Lift Coffee Stains using White Vinegar

This approach cleans two things at once. Fill your carafe halfway with white vinegar, then a third of the way with water. Put this solution into the reservoir of your coffee machine and set it to brew. It will not only remove stains from the carafe, but it would also clean the inside of your coffee maker. Be careful to wash your coffee machine with plain water, rinse it twice.

Remove Coffee Stains with Denture Tablets

Denture pills are useful not only for cleaning dentures but also for maintaining your carafe. Allow 15 minutes after adding two antibacterial denture pills to a carafe filled with warm water. Once the pot is clean, scrub and rinse it.

How to Clean a Thermal Coffee Pot

Place one dishwasher tablet in the thermal coffee pot that is empty. Bring the water to a boil then put it in the pot. This is critical. The water must be extremely hot. If you do it using lukewarm water, it might not turn out so well.

To enable the dishwashing tablet to work its magic, set your timer for 30 minutes. Take out the cleaning solution after waiting the required amount of time. Check and see whether all of the residues have been dissolved in the water.

You may need to utilize a brush to soften up any sticky spots depending on how hard the residue is, but they will simply come off and rinse away wonderfully. Easy right?

Don’t forget to clean your grinder while you are cleaning your coffee pot. Add white rice into the reservoir of a coffee grinder and turn it on or crank it by hand to clean it. The rice eliminates any remaining coffee grinds, leaving a clean grinder ready with your fresh batch of brew.
