For many a cup of coffee help them start their day while others like to refill on coffee throughout the day. It is a great way to activate your brain and improve your efficiency. However, sometimes when coffee is hot and your brain is not fully awake yet, an accidental coffee spill can ruin your morning, your sofa, desk or even your favourite shirt. Coffee stains are not really a style statement, unfortunately. They are ugly and stubborn unless dealt with and removed immediately. Coffee stains need different treatment depending upon where they are. With our years of professional experience of removing stains, we have compiled a comprehensive guide for you about how you can take out coffee stains from literally anywhere and any surface.
Fresh Coffee Stains
It’s ok, don’t panic, just blot as much liquid you can write away with a napkin or sponge. If its a garment run some water on it and you can save the day. If it’s your carpet or sofa dab some wet napkin on it. Do not run tap water over your carpet as it will damage it.
Removing coffee stains from fabric
If the stain has already dried pour three to four drops of liquid laundry detergent and let it sit on the stain for a few minutes, rub the detergent over the stain with your fingers and then rinse off. If the stain has not faded out completely repeat the process a couple of more times until the stain is gone. Alternatively, you can make a past by taking powder detergent and adding a little amount of white vinegar, put the paste on the stain and brush it gently with an old toothbrush.
Taking the coffee stain out from the wooden table
Of course, you could have just wiped out the coffee when it was spilt, but if you just discovered the stain and it has already dried, don’t worry there is still away. It’s as easy as pouring a little white vinegar over the stain, wipe away the stain with a clean cloth once the coffee is dissolved in white vinegar and let it air dry. You will be surprised that with this little effort your wooden table/floor will be as clean as if it was new.
Carpet Cleaning and Coffee Stains
You can damage your carpet if you try to rub off the coffee stain or use a bleaching agent for spot treatment. Even applying white vinegar without diluting it in the right quantity can discolour the treated area. Carpets are expensive therefore it is smart to hire a professional service or seek professional consultation for carpet cleaning. Take one tablespoon of the liquid dishwasher, one tablespoon of white vinegar and add them in two cups of water. Spray generously on the stain and blot alternatively with a wet and dry towel. Do not rub off the stain or you will damage the frays of carpet. Repeat the process until the stain is completely gone.
Cleaning Coffee stains out of upholstery
Add one tablespoon of liquid dish soap, a quarter cup of white vinegar in two cups of warm water. Dampen a cloth in this solution and dab it over the stain and blot with a dry cloth. Work your way from outside to inside and repeat until the stain is gone completely.
