Wednesday's Wisdom - Coffee Stain Removal

Updated: Jul 25

Ever suffered a pet inducted coffee splill? Its a tragedy that all coffee lovers know too well. Here is Wednesday's wisdom to help remove the stain from your old favourite jumper, shirt or linen.


Our pets or children don't really know the important of that early morning brew. Don't touch the computer stroke me!!!!



Like many others before, we can use a few household ingredients to help remove the evidence of the tough morning you suffered.


Salt

Place a generous amount of table salt over the coffee stain area and layer it on so it acts deep into the fabric and liquid. Wait a few minutes and gently rub away the salt with a cloth or some kitchen towel. This will help remove the worst of the stain, soak up the liquid and reduce the spread.


Vinegar and Bicarb of Soda

It may not smell great on your clothes but it is fairly effective to mix white vinegar and some bicarb of soda in a cup, then use a old tooth brush to generally rub the paste into the stained area. Again use a cloth or kitchen towel to remove the mixture after a minute or so. Be mindful to avoid damaging the fibres by not scrubbing too hard.


Wash as normal afterwards to remove the smell and the stain.
