Stain Buster — Coffee

coffee

Fabric

Sponge the stain with cool water or soak the item for about 30 minutes in cool water. Pretreat with a prewash stain remover then wash, adding bleach if safe for the fabric.

 

Upholstery

Mix one tablespoon of washing up liquid with two cups of cool water. Using a clean white cloth, sponge the stain with the detergent solution and blot until the liquid is absorbed. Keep sponging and blotting until the stain disappears. Sponge with cold water and blot dry.

OR

Using a clean white cloth, sponge the stain with a proprietary dry-cleaning solvent and blot until the solvent is absorbed. Keep sponging and blotting until the stain disappears.

 

Carpet

Blot up as much of the spilled coffee as possible. Use plain water or mix one tablespoon of washing up liquid and one tablespoon of white vinegar with two cups of warm water. Using a clean white cloth, sponge the stain with plain water or the detergent/vinegar solution. Apply a little bit at a time, blotting frequently with a dry cloth until the stain disappears. If using a detergent/vinegar solution, sponge with cold water and blot dry to remove the solution.

 

Coffee and cream

If there's cream (or milk) in the coffee that caused the stain, be sure to use a biological laundry detergent when washing the stained item.
