However, you need not despair as there are a number of ways you can remove coffee stains and make them disappear. And you donít have to use any specialized cleaners or solutions.

If you are trying to remove coffee stains from leather or suede, you have to use the utmost care. Use the following method then to remove not only coffee but chocolate or tea as well.

Step One:

If the stain is new, blot up any excess liquid with a soft, clean cloth.

Step Two:

Combine some mild dishwashing detergent with some warm water.
Make sure the water is plenty sudsy as you donít want to wipe the material with any water. You just want to apply the foam.

Step Three:

Cleaning the Inside of a Coffee Pot: Simplifying the Process

For cleaning the inside of a coffee pot, you can simplify the matter by filling it about half-way full with crushed ice and moving the ice around to clean off the residue. The scraping action of the ice will help get rid of the stains.

Coffee Stains on Clothes

Coffee stains on clothes are most easily removed by applying a dishwashing detergent, such as Dawn, to the area first, then laundering it, again, with Dawn or a mild laundry detergent. Bar soap should not be used for removing such stains as they only worsen the problem. If the stain is older, treat the area with bleach if the garment is white, or use a color-safe formula for other materials.
