Hi. We just did this, use dish washing liquid full strength on the stain. Disappears in seconds! Use it on the stains in your coffee mugs too!

Very simple, just run it thru a water only brew cycle with any denture cleaning tablet (no-name ones work great). If it still needs more, then soak in overnight with two or three tablets.

If you use lemon juice and sugar or salt you can clean the stain without damaging the plastic like some of the harsher cleaners can and you don't end up with a chemical smell.

For years I have used baking soda to get the coffee stains off the plastic carafe lid as well as inside the carafe. Just sprinkle enough on to make it grainy, rub with your dishcloth or a wet sponge, and rinse.

Not only does the baking soda scrub off the stain, it also removes the leftover coffee smell!

Give this a try, Just mix equal parts of SALT and white vinegar, and scrub the marks away, OR Try Denture cleaning tablets, Just fill the vessel with warm water, pop in a tablet, let it dissolve, and wait a minute or two. Pour out the water and eyeball the surface. If you still see marks, repeat the procedure.

My son used a capful of bleach in hot water. I bet hydrogen peroxide would work without the nasty bleach fumes. On sale, you can get 2 bottles for $1. I've used peroxide to remove "organic" stains from many surfaces, like carpeting, upholstery, clothing & counter tops. I figure if it will remove grape juice, coffee, tea & cocoa stains from these, it should also work for your problem.

Just pour the peroxide into a shallow bowl then put the lid inside it. If it's to big, use either a toothbrush with peroxide on it or put the peroxide in a well-marked spray bottle. Simply let it fizz, then repeat if necessary. It leaves no residue.

Also, the tips "Jamish" posted are equally good & will also work! I guess, what works is "whatever you already have around the house".

Try baking soda in boiling water and let the lid soak. I use that mixture for the coffee pot and it works like a charm.
