Hi John, If your glass pot has a coffee film, add some baking soda and white vinegar to the glass pot. When this stops foaming up wash with a soft cloth then rince with water.

I did this when the film of coffee stained the glass and I couldn't get it off. I was amazed at how well this worked and the glass caraf (Pot) never looked better!!

Pour Vinegar in the part you add water. ›Use at least one Cup. (I use about 1/2 a pot.) ›Then run 2 or 3 pots of water through your machine to remove the Vinegar. ›Lime Away works but it is more expensive. ›Then after the Vinegar has run through throw it down your sink and add Baking Soda (Put in before the Vinegar). ›When it stops foaming. Pour or run very hot water down the sink. ›This clears the drain. ›Two uses for the price of one! That's frugal.
