Pour a handful of table salt into the dirty coffee pot. Use a wet sponge/dish towel to rub it around on the stains. Rinse clean.

Add a cup of vinegar to the water and run it through as normal without coffee and it'll clean the inside of the machine as well. Then dump the water, rinse and wipe dry.

You can also put a handful of table salt into the dirty coffee pot, add ice and swirl it around.

If when your coffee pot is freshly emptied, you rinse it out with very hot water, you won't have to clean it as often. Then use the salt/ice method which works well with narrow necked coffee pots that you can't scrub by hand and a brush isn't very effective.

But salt/ice/swirling method works very well!

I worked at a steakhouse for several years and we always cleaned our coffee pots with lemon slices, 1/2 cup of salt, and ice swished around and around and then run through the dishwasher for sterilization. They always sparkled! I always keep lemons on hand for that and freshening the garbage disposal!

Fill your pot with water. Bring it to a boil. Remove the pot to the sink. Dump about a tablespoon of Cream of Tartar in the water. Let it foam up. When the foaming subsides, return the pot to the stove & let it boil gently over medium heat for about 10 minutes.

Rinse & use.

Put some dishwasher detergent powder in pot, add hot water. Let it stand a few minutes and wash the inside with a dish cloth and it will sparkle.

Use salt put in the pot and swish around. It may take a time or two but it does work.
