How do I clean coffee stains off of my coffee pot?
By garfield8686 from OH
Is this a pot or a coffee maker? If it is a coffee maker try vinegar and water mix, or a peroxide and water mixture. Both will work. If it is an open metal perk type pot or coffee holder then you can use a little bleach with water, but don't use bleach in a coffee maker. Either rinse with water after or put the coffee maker through its paces with water only before using it again.
Regular salt is a great stain remover. That is how commercial coffee pots are used.
I always put 2 tablespoons worth of ammonia in my pot and wash with a wash cloth, holding my face and nose away but it melts stains right off then I rinse very well with very hot water a few times to be sure the ammonia is gone and wa la! your pot is sparkling clean!
I find that the Mr. Clean sponge does the trick with hardly any elbow grease at all.
Salt and ice cubes (about 1/4 to 1/3 of a pot of ice) and you only have to swish them around for a little bit to get the job done and you're not using chemicals ;-) You can also use cut up lemons and ice cubes but lemons are rather expensive these days.
The way I clean my coffee pot etc is a breeze with either Calgon water softener or Mr clean magic cleaning pad, each is great on their own or can be used together, I soak burnt on food & oven ring spill catchers with Calgon & a little dish soap works in no time. I also use Calgon in dishwasher & washing machine, I love the "stuff"!
