I tried all of the posted suggestions to no avail. This morning I was cleaning my oven and thought "what the heck" ... I'll try oven spray on my coffee pot. Wonder of wonders, the pot cleaned up beautifully in less than 15 minutes.
Hello, some good suggestions but be careful with using bleach as it will many times take the protective "coating" off items and they will just restain faster as the "shine" is gone. It is safe to use on glass and ceramic types like coffee cups and thermos items.
I put bleach, a very small pinch of dish soap & fill with hot water, put cover on tight, shake then let sit, rinse thoroughly after about 10-15 mins depending on amt of bleach used & severity of stains. I find this the best way when can't get a dish cloth, etc into opening of container. I do this for badly stained coffee mugs - just rinse well.
Have you tried Bicarbonate of Soda? I use this a lot for cleaning mine and it works a treat! Dab a little Bicarb onto a damp cloth and rub gently, it seems to work for me! And it's not full of nasties either!
