How to Remove Coffee Stains from Clothes
If you're a coffee drinker, then you know that no matter how careful you are, sooner or later those pesky stains will find their way onto your clothes. But don't despair! There are ways to get rid of coffee stains - and the Homethings team is here to share them with you.
So, without further ado, here's a step-by-step guide on how to remove coffee stains from clothes:
Step 1: Act fast. The sooner you treat a coffee stain, the better your chances of removing it completely. So, as soon as you notice the stain, grab some paper towels or a clean cloth and start blotting. Don't rub—that will only spread the stain and make it more difficult to remove.
Step 2: Make a paste. Combine equal parts baking soda and water to form a paste, then apply it to the stain. Let it sit for about 15 minutes before moving on to the next step.
Step 3: Rinse with cold water. Carefully rinse the area with cold water, being careful not to rub or scrub, which will only make the stain worse.
Step 4: Wash as usual. Once you've rinsed away the paste, wash your clothing item as you normally would. If you fancy making this step slightly more eco friendly, why not use our Laundrythings – which have powerful coffee-cleaning performance with planet friendly chemicals.
And that's it! With any luck, your coffee stain will be gone for good. But if it's still there, don't hesitate to repeat the steps until the stain is removed completely.
So next time you spill coffee on your shirt, don't panic! Just follow these steps and watch those stains disappear like magic.
