Anyone have any suggestions for removing coffee stains from a white plastic coffee carafe lid?

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.

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.
