Removing Coffee and Tea Stains from Cups

To remove tea and coffee stains from cups or glasses, dampen a dishcloth or paper towel with water, then dip in baking soda and rub. This also works for baking dishes, like CorningWare.

Stubborn Tea and Coffee Stains

To get rid of stubborn tea and coffee stains in mugs add a good shake of detergent powder to a large bowl of water and leave the mugs in it overnight.

I've also found that it works well to use a tiny amount of cleanser, such as Comet, on those stains. It takes them off immediately and leaves a shining cup.

Clorox Clean-up

Clorox Clean-up spray works great! I use it on my coffee pot all of the time, as well as my iced tea pitchers that get stained.

The very best way to remove tea stains from a cup is to sprinkle table salt in the cup and rub with a soft cloth. My Mother passed this on to me and I have been using this method for fifty years. It works wonders and is not caustic.
