Cleaning Coffee Pot Stains

I learned a neat trick for cleaning coffee pots or tea pots. Fill with crushed ice (you can put ice cubes in a bread bag and hammer them until crushed), quite a bit of salt, and a lemon slice. Swish it around several times and rinse out. If the pot is stained, you'll need to let it sit longer and then use a large brush to clean.

Ice works too for coffee that has been left in the pot and baked on. Just swish it around and the crusted coffee comes right off the glass. (05/21/2009)

Cleaning Coffee Pot Stains--Press pot

Anyone ever tried the ice, salt ,lemon in a French press carafe? Just bought it last week. The glass seems so thin I'm fear the ice cube (even crushed-style) might crack it. Hate to take the chance unless someone has done it successfully. (05/21/2009)
