Mundane Cleaning Hacks To Remove Coffee And Tea Stains From Porcelain Cups And Mugs

After a few months of use, your mugs get a brownish color inside – due to coffee or tea – that won’t come off with dish soap and water.

In spite of this, you can still drink coffee from your favorite mug if you clean it with efficient products. There are some non-chemical options that don’t use abrasives, and I have listed them below:

🧂 Baking soda

This is a multi-purpose ingredient that you definitely need in your house, because it can get you out of trouble immediately. In order to clean stained mugs and cups, you simply need to moisten a dish sponge in water and sprinkle some baking soda over it. Now rub the cup with it, and repeat if necessary. Rinse it afterwards.

The spots will disappear like magic, but the cup will also regain its shine. If you replace baking soda with baking powder, you will get the same result.

🍋 Lemon

Slice a lemon in half and rub one half over the stain. In a few seconds, the stain will disappear. There is no magic, just citric acid’s strong effect.

🟢 White vinegar

Acid can remove all sorts of stains from porcelain, including coffee stains and black tea stains. This time, acetic acid is the star, and this common ingredient can restore your mugs to their former glory. Rub the stains on the mug with a dish sponge dipped in vinegar. After rinsing, let it dry.

You can now restore the shine to your porcelain cups and mugs by choosing your favorite natural stain remover!
