Glass Coffee Pot Cleaners

(1 serving)

  • Method 1: 1 cup bleach
  • Method 2: 1/2 cup salt and crushed ice to fill the pot
  • Method 3: 1/4 cup vinegar and water
In method one, you put a cup of liquid bleach in the pot and swirl it around. The stains will begin to break up immediately, You can help to speed the proccess by putting on a rubber glove and scrubbing gently with a coarse dish-washing pad. Rinse the pot completely serval times when finished.

The bleach method worked very well, but you really do have to rinse the pot thoughougly to be free of the odor and residue left by the bleach.

In method two, you use 1/2 cup of salt and enough crushed ice to fill your pot about 3/4 full. You're supposed to swirl the pot and watch the stains dissapear. This method doesn't work. Forget you read about it.

In method three, or "the stinking method", you place 1/4 cup vinegar in the water resevoir of your coffee maker. Add water until the resevoir is full. Run the coffee maker. After turning off the coffee maker to let the solution cool, pour the vinegar water back into the resevoir and run the machine again.

The process is supposed to conclude with the running of plain water through the coffee maker. It really ends when you realize that the stains were only partially removed and your entire machine smells like vinegar. At which point, you have to start over with a different cleaning solution.

Comet Disinfectant Cleanser works better than any of these homespun cleaning agents.
