The Scrub Method

Step 1

Start off with scrubbing using a wet cloth. The stains won’t leave easily. Add salt and scrub again.

Step 2

Now, pour some vinegar and let it sit there for a few minutes.

Before you scrub, sprinkle the baking soda and add lemon juice.

Finally, scrub it and wash the stains away.

The Soak Method

Step 1

Take a pot, fill it with water and bring it to boil.

Step 2

Squeeze the lemon juice, add two tbsp. of salt, a couple of denture tablets, four tbsp. of dishwasher detergent and ¼ cup of washing soda. Mix the ingredients well using a wooden spoon.

Step 3

Dip the coffee cup(s) and keep on boiling the mixture. Let it boil for 30 minutes to an hour.

Step 4

Carefully take out the cup(s), grab a dry cloth and scrub it. Finally, rinse it well and your stains are fully gone.

So, that’s it guys! This is a simple and straightforward way to remove coffee stains from cups. You can use the same strategy to get rid of tea stains in your mugs, cups and pots.

I’ll recommend the scrub method since it is safe as compared to the soak and boil.
