Many of us can’t get going in the morning without our coffee fix. But, occasionally, this can exact a heavy price. If you’ve ever spilled coffee all over your favourite bed linen or carpet, you’ll know what we mean…
However, what you may not have known (but will wish you had) is that there is a way to get rid of coffee stains. Here’s how.
1. Blot up the spill with kitchen roll or an old towel until most of the liquid has been removed.
2. Next, get an empty spray bottle and mix up some water with vinegar and a few teaspoons of a gentle, non-bleaching detergent such as dish soap. Shake and then spritz over the stain, blotting the area after each application. Repeat this process until the stain has disappeared.
3. Leave to dry and that’s it!
4. If it’s an item of clothing or linen, you may want to throw it in the wash with some stain remover just as an extra measure.
