Good thing to know about the QT vase! Especially since I've been wanting to buy one.
An old trick I learned way back when I waitressed was to put salt, lemon juice, and ice cubes in a coffee *** and swirl it around for a bit. It always got out the coffee stains and burned up spots of coffee where the *** had been left on the burner too long. Left the pots smelling sweet and sparkling. Might help with your QT vase. Or perhaps just an overnight soak with water and Lemishine crystals--I love Lemishine.
