The Dreaded Coffee Stain

Yeah, maybe that picture is a little extreme ? But, let’s face it friends. We’ve ALL been there!

Whether you’re in a restaurant, sitting at your kitchen table, in the office, or even driving a car – at some point in your life, the dreaded coffee stain has appeared.

Maybe it’s not on your shirt – maybe it’s on the carpet, on the wall (you know, you sneeze and, well, you know), and maybe it’s even on your shoes. But at some point, somewhere, you’ve more than likely experienced a coffee stain (unless of course you don’t drink coffee ?).

So what are some tricks to get rid of these stains? I’m glad you asked – cause I have some tricks for you!

If a coffee stain is on your clothes, and the clothing is washable, wet the area with just plain water. Then make a solution of equal parts of laundry detergent and white vinegar. Rub that mixture into the stain, rubbing gently until it lifts and fades. Then, just simply put it in the wash. Your stain on your clothes should disappear!

If the stain is in your carpet, blot it first with paper towels or a microfiber cloth. Then, blot away with vinegar! Vinegar will break down the acids in the coffee, and will lift the stain!

Let’s just say that the coffee stain is in your favorite mug. Well, there’s a way to get rid of that too. Want a neat way to do it? Denture tablets! Drop a denture tablet into the mug with some H2O and let it sit overnight. In the morning, rinse out the mug and run it through your dishwasher, or wash by hand. That stain should be completely gone!

Believe it or not – some other contestants for getting rid of coffee stains are shaving cream, toothpaste and baby powder! These are all pretty much the same idea – rub them in, let them sit for a bit, and then wipe up. With the baby powder idea, you would let the baby powder sit until it’s dry then vacuum it up.

Which idea would you try?
