Coffee stains can be removed easily using this method. The stain can be removed much more easily if not allowed to dry. Blot the stain with a clean white cloth to remove any excess liquid. Mix a teaspoon of a good dishwashing detergent, such as Dawn, with a cup of lukewarm water. Sponge the area with the dishwashing solution, then blot again with your clean white cloth. Next, mix 1/3 cup of white vinegar with 2/3 cup of lukewarm water. Once again sponge the area with this solution, and blot again with a clean white cloth. Rinse with clean water, and launder as soon as possible, following the care label instructions. Carpeting can be cleaned using the above method and ingredients.
- Mix one teaspoon of a mild ph balanced detergent (a mild non alkaline non bleaching detergent) with a cup of lukewarm water
- Mix one third cup of white household vinegar with two thirds cup of water
- Sponge with clean water
Note: Always test an inconspicuous area for colorfastness, etc. before treating the exposed area. Also note that certain stains are permanent .
Coffee Stains sometimes require a more professional approach. I suggest using any professional strength carpet spot remover that is specifically used for tannin removal. Coffee, tea and other like items have a specific chemical compound that require a tannin remover. Always use our products according to directions.
