Works for Me: Cleaning Glass (coffee pots, pitchers, thermos)

My sister showed me a REALLY neat way to get the sticky condensed coffee residue off the bottom of a glass coffee pot, without any residual smell from harsher cleaning chemicals.

Into the room temperature coffee pot, throw a tablespoon or two of salt and about a dozen ice cubes. Start swirling. As the salt melts the ice it will be very easy to swirly, but yet abrasive enough to get all those little bits off.

It would also work for a glass pitcher or glass lined thermos. Works for me!

Thanks for visiting my website. Poutine does indeed sound like a heart attack on a plate. Might be worth trying, though. I adore fried chicken. Off to check out your recipes.
