I reached out to the brand to get their advice, and while they have their own cleaning solution and brush that they sell exactly for this purpose, they said many of their users find a vinegar solution to be easy, effective, and economical.
What You’ll Need
- Warm water
- Distilled white vinegar
- Long-handled bottle brush (make sure it has a wood or plastic handle so you don’t damage the carafe; Chemex has its own great-looking version)
- Unscented dish soap
