Lemons Lemons are acidic but they also smell great, which makes them a great balance when it comes to cleaning products.

The Cleaning Process

Vinegar – Mix one part water with one part vinegar and let it sit inside the coffee pot for several hours or even overnight to really soak the inside. Then rinse it out.

Baking Soda – Baking soda is great for scrubbing the interior of your pot so pour a cup of it into your pot and then add warm water. Scrub it out and rinse.

Hydrogen Peroxide –  If the baking soda doesn’t do the trick you can use a half cup of hydrogen peroxide with two tablespoons of baking soda and let it sit for 30 minutes before rinsing.

Dishwashing Powder – The pods are the best way to go with this and all you have to do is boil water in your coffee pot and add the dishwasher pod. Let the water sit for half an hour, pour out the water and rinse.

Lemons Cut your lemons and squeeze the juice into your coffee pot. Add a little bit of salt to get you some scrubbing power. Then mix it up and leave it for a few hours to soak. When you’re done, scrub out the inside of the pot.

Commercial Cleaners – All you have to do is follow the instructions on the specific cleaner that you decide to use.

Use glass cleaner on a soft cloth to get rid of fingerprints and a mix of baking soda and warm water to get rid of anything that is baked on. Use stainless steel cleaner to get rid of scratches or stains.

Always make sure that you rinse and dry the area you clean.
