TIMESINDONESIA, JAKARTA – It is annoying to see a ring on the bottom of your favorite mug after having coffee or tea. Your favorite warm beverage can become a foe when it leaves unsightly stains behind. Follow these three easy methods for removing tea and coffee stains from mugs.

1. Soak with dish soap

Dish soap is formulated to lift stains and can be your first line of defense to get coffee stains out of mugs. Squirt a little soap into the mug, add enough warm water to cover the stain, and swish the mixture around.

Let the mug sit for a few minutes (longer if the stain is set in) and allow the dish soap to penetrate the stain. Once the soap has had a chance to work, scrub the stain with a sponge.

2. Baking soda

If soap doesnt do the trick, you could sprinkle about 1 tsp. baking soda on the stain and add a little water to make a paste. Scrub the stain with a damp, soft sponge.

The gentle, abrasive nature of baking soda helps lift coffee or tea stains from the surface. Once you've finished scrubbing, rinse the mug well to remove any remaining baking soda.

3. Vinegar

This such a powerful means to work on coffee and tea stains. You only need to fill your mug halfway with distilled white vinegar then fill to the top with very hot water.

Allow the mixture to sit for at least 10 minutes to give the vinegar time to work. After soaking your mug, scrub away the tea of coffee stains using dish soap and a soft sponge, then rinse.
