So, taking the time to give it a thorough scrub with a sponge or brush is well worth the effort. By removing any buildup or residue, you’ll ensure that your beverage is consistently delicious with each pour. Plus, keeping your carafe clean will help it last longer so that you can enjoy your favorite drinks for years to come. So go ahead, take out that carafe and get cleaning!

6. Rinse Thoroughly With Cold Water

Finally, you want to rinse your carafe with nice, cold water to get any left over vinegar or dirt and minerals.  Once you do this, it should be sparkling clean and ready to be used again.
