Coffee stains can be a pain to remove from mugs. This is because the usual methods don’t work on coffee stains, as they seem like they’ll never come off. Luckily, there are ways to get coffee stains off of your stainless steel mugs. If this is something that you want to learn more about, read on for four easy ways to clean coffee stains from your mugs.

Dishwasher Detergent and Boiling Water

This method is excellent if you don’t have a lot of time to spend cleaning your mugs. All you’ll have to do is put your dishwasher detergent of choice in your mug and fill it with boiling water. From there, all you’ll have to do is to let it soak for around 30 minutes, and the mug should look good as new. The combination of both the boiling water and the detergent will help loosen the coffee stains. Now, some of the stains may remain but will be easy to clean. For these stains, it’s best to scrub your mug and rinse it with clean water.

Denture Tablets

We can’t blame you if you’ve never thought of using denture tablets to clean your mug and remove coffee stains. While you may find this odd, denture tablets are incredibly effective for cleaning coffee stains. When you consider that denture tablets are mainly used to get rid of tobacco stains and food stains, this method makes a little more sense. Simply drop the denture tablet in the mug that’s filled with water and let it do all the work for you. You may still need to scrub the mug, but the stains left should come off with little to no effort.

Hydrogen Peroxide and Baking Soda

Hydrogen peroxide is something that everyone should have in their home as it serves a slew of different purposes ranging from first aid to cleaning. To use hydrogen peroxide to clean your stainless steel mugs, you’ll need to pair it with a little baking soda. Add half a cup of hydrogen peroxide and two tablespoons of baking soda in your mug filled with water. From there, just let it soak for around 30 minutes and scrub the mug clean after draining its contents.

Vinegar and Baking Soda

If you want to clean your mug with stuff you already have in your home, this method is best for you. All you have to do is add two teaspoons of baking soda to your mug that’s half-filled with warm water. From there, top the solution with vinegar and let it soak for 10 minutes. You should notice the solution get fizzy and bubbly, indicating you mixed the ingredients correctly. Once you’ve drained and rinsed the mug, scrub any remaining stains off of your mug.
