Hi. We just did this, use dish washing liquid full strength on the stain. Disappears in seconds! Use it on the stains in your coffee mugs too!

Very simple, just run it thru a water only brew cycle with any denture cleaning tablet (no-name ones work great). If it still needs more, then soak in overnight with two or three tablets.

If you use lemon juice and sugar or salt you can clean the stain without damaging the plastic like some of the harsher cleaners can and you don't end up with a chemical smell.

For years I have used baking soda to get the coffee stains off the plastic carafe lid as well as inside the carafe. Just sprinkle enough on to make it grainy, rub with your dishcloth or a wet sponge, and rinse.

Not only does the baking soda scrub off the stain, it also removes the leftover coffee smell!

I am trying to clean the coffee stain off of a carafe lid. The lid is white plastic and although I have cleaned all the residue off, the plastic has been stained. Any help? I have tried everything I can think of, including denture tablets, but nothing touches it.

Did you try to soak it in some bleach water? I've had good luck with that method. (06/25/2005)

Try dishwasher gel. Just smear it on and let it sit overnight. If that doesn't work, cover with a double layer of paper towel or a cloth and saturate with straight bleach. Leave overnight. (06/27/2005)

Clorox Cleanup works really well on coffee and tea stains; also you could try Soft Scrub with bleach, or sit it in the sun for several hours. Good luck. (06/27/2005)

You could try a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. It cleans up all kinds of stuff. (06/28/2005)

Bar Keeper's Friend. Go to barkeepersfriend.com. I've found this product at Walmart, Bed Bath and Beyond and some grocery stores. It sells for between $2-3. (07/06/2005)

That new cleaner, BAM, works great on just about everything and I found it @ CVS for $1.59. It's much more expensive at the grocery stores. (12/08/2005)

I spilled coffee inside my microwave and stained it. The coffee carafe lid also was stained. I bought the Clean-n-Brite concentrate powder. Then I make 100s of bottles of cleaner by adding my own water and mixing. It also removed betadine stains from my hospital shoes. Sometimes they have free samples in the spring. (03/16/2007)

Use the OxyClean that's advertised on TV. Make a solution with a couple of tablespoons in hot water, pour into the carafe or soak the stained items in it. Within 10-15 minutes super clean. Works on stainless steel and plastic. Rinse well. (09/27/2008)
