Simple Ways to Get Rid of Coffee Stains [HOW TO]


You may love your espresso machine and the brew that it makes. However, the resulting stains are not so pleasant, particularly when you notice that some of the splotches have settled on your clothing, upholstery, or carpeting. 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. In most cases, all you need are some clean cloths, mild dishwashing liquid, baking soda, white vinegar and warm or cold water.

Cleaning Coffee Stains from Leather or Suede

What you will Need:

--Lukewarm Water
--Mild Dishwashing Detergent
--A Couple Dry Clean Cloths
--Sponge

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:

Use a sponge and carefully apply the suds, gently wiping the area.

Step Four:

Wipe up the suds with a dry, clean cloth.

Note: Usually, this method of stain removal works on new stains or coffee that has just been spilled. If the coffee stain is an old one, try this method first before taking the garment to have it dry cleaned.

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.
