This procedure may have to be repeated. Make a paste of three parts baking soda to one part water to remove dark coffee stains. For an all-purpose cleaner, mix one part vinegar with two parts water.

Coffee is one of those smells that everyone knows but no one wants to admit they like. Some people can't stand the smell of coffee while others love it. Either way, there are ways to eliminate or reduce the smell of coffee without turning into a caffeine addict.

First things first: know what kind of coffee you are drinking. If it's roasted coffee beans, then that means there is still some oil present in the bean which will give it a slight smell. But if it's decaffeinated coffee, then there is no smell at all!

Next, find out how the smell of coffee was introduced in the first place. Was it by brewing coffee? If so, then stop doing that! The more you brew coffee, the more chemicals will be released into the water which will then end up in your next cup.

Place a container in the location where the odor originates. Place used coffee grinds in small containers throughout your home. Odors will be absorbed and eliminated by the coffee grinds.

Lemon: Lemon has a strong scent, so it's perfect for getting rid of smells from around the house. To eliminate an odor, place a slice of lemon in a glass bowl. Cover with plastic wrap or aluminum foil and let sit for several hours or overnight. Rinse lemon before using again.

How do you clean a clogged pour-over coffee filter?

But don't worry—simple. It's Soak the coffee filter in a 1:2 solution of distilled white vinegar and water. Overnight is the best option. If you don't have time to soak your filter before the next usage, a dab of baking soda with a scrub brush would suffice. The salt will still absorb some of the acidity from the vinegar, but not all of it.

Once your filter is clean, rinse it under running water for at least 30 minutes to remove any remaining residue or salt. Then, put it through a full cycle of washing with hot water, drying completely, and storing in a dry place like a drawer or cabinet is all you need to do to keep it clean forever.

After cleaning, rinse the mug thoroughly with water and dry it completely before using it again.
