SSPDaily has prepared tips to help you deal with stubborn coffee stains using various methods and natural remedies. We will consider methods of using common household items, as well as stain removers.

Laundry soap

Start by blotting the stain with a slightly damp cloth or paper towel to remove excess coffee. Then apply a small amount of soap directly to the stain, gently rubbing it into the fabric.

Leave the soap on for a few minutes to allow it to absorb better. Finally, rinse the area thoroughly with cold water. If the stain remains, repeat the process or try an alternative method.

Using vinegar and baking soda

Mix white vinegar and water in equal parts, adding a teaspoon of baking soda to enhance the effect. Mix until the baking soda is completely dissolved. Apply the solution to the stain and leave for about 30 minutes.

After that, gently rub the stain with a toothbrush or soft brush, and then rinse the item in cold water to remove any residual solution. This method works well for both fresh and old stains.

Using hydrogen peroxide

Before use, it is important to conduct a test on a small, inconspicuous area of the garment to ensure compatibility and prevent discoloration or damage. After testing, apply a small amount of hydrogen peroxide directly to the affected area.

Leave on for a few minutes, then gently pat the stain with a clean cloth or sponge. Repeat this procedure if necessary and rinse thoroughly with cold water. Wash the product immediately to prevent odor.

Using lemon juice

Begin by squeezing fresh lemon juice onto the stain to ensure that the fabric is saturated. Gently rub the affected area with your fingers or a clean cloth. Leave the lemon juice on the stain for about 10-15 minutes.

After that, rinse the garment with cold water and repeat the procedure if you deem it necessary. It is important to note that while lemon juice is effective on light fabrics, it can cause fading on darker fabrics. Therefore, a patch test is recommended before use.

Stain removing pens or sprays

These specialized products are designed to effectively remove a variety of stains, including coffee stains. Follow the instructions on the product's packaging and apply the stain remover directly to the stained area.

Blot or gently rub the stain with a clean cloth or sponge. While these stain removers are often effective for dried or stubborn stains, more stubborn or deeper stains may require multiple applications.
