Washing a stainless steel coffeepot in the dishwasher or with a soapy cloth is not enough to keep stains from building up on the sides of the pot. This technique makes them easy to clean.
Things You'll Need
- 1 cup vinegar
- ½ cup baking soda
Wash the coffeepot either in the dishwasher or by hand with hot, soapy water.
Pour the vinegar into the pot and swirl around. Allow to sit for about 10 minutes.
Rinse with hot water. Do not dry.
Pour the baking soda into the wet coffeepot.
Use a damp cloth or a wet nylon scrub pad and scrub the baking soda all around the inside of the coffeepot until clean and shiny.
