Introduction: Why coffee stains are difficult to remove
Coffee stains are difficult to remove because they are usually oily and dark in color. The oils in coffee can bind to fabrics, making the stain difficult to lift. Coffee stains can also be difficult to see, so you may not realize you have one until it has already set in.
To remove a coffee stain, you will need to treat it as soon as possible. The longer a coffee stain sits, the harder it will be to remove. You will also need to be careful not to spread the stain when you are trying to remove it. Follow the steps below for the best chance of success.
The best way to remove coffee stains
If you’re dealing with a fresh coffee stain, the best thing to do is to blot the area with a clean, dry cloth to absorb as much of the coffee as possible. Then, run cold water over the back of the stain and continue to blot with a dry cloth. Once the stain has been saturated with cold water, you can apply a pre-treatment laundry product or dish soap directly to the stain and scrub with a clean brush or toothbrush. Finally, launder your clothing as usual.
If you’re dealing with a set-in coffee stain, start by diluting the area with cold water and applying a pre-treatment laundry product or dish soap. Then, launder your clothing in the hottest water possible that is safe for the fabric. Be sure to check the care label on your clothing first! If the stain remains after washing, mix one part white vinegar with two parts water and soak the garment for 30 minutes before laundering again.
Other ways to remove coffee stains
If you’re out of laundry detergent and need to remove a coffee stain from clothing, there are a few other household items that can do the job. Liquid dish soap, hairspray, and vinegar are all effective at removing coffee stains from clothing.
To remove a coffee stain with dish soap, saturated the stain with the soap then rub it into the fabric. Let it sit for a few minutes then rinse with cold water. Repeat if necessary.
Hairspray can also be used to remove coffee stains from clothing. Saturate the stain with hairspray then rub it into the fabric. Let it sit for a few minutes then rinse with cold water. Repeat if necessary.
Vinegar can also be used to remove coffee stains from clothing. Combine equal parts vinegar and water in a bowl then saturate the stain with the mixture. Rub it into the fabric then let it sit for a few minutes. Rinse with cold water then repeat if necessary.
Tips for preventing coffee stains
To prevent coffee stains, start by treating the spill as quickly as possible. The longer the coffee sits, the harder it will be to remove. Use a paper towel or napkin to blot the coffee stain as much as possible. Avoid rubbing the coffee stain, as this will only spread the stain and make it more difficult to remove.
Next, pre-treat the coffee stain with a laundry pre-treatment product or liquid detergent. Apply the pre-treatment directly to the coffee stain and allow it to soak in for several minutes before laundering as usual. Be sure to read the care label on your garment before pre-treating or laundering, as some fabrics may be damaged by certain products or processes.
If you don’t have a pre-treatment product on hand, you can try making a paste out of baking soda and water. Apply the paste directly to the coffee stain and allow it to sit for about 15 minutes before laundering. You can also try sprinkling salt on fresh coffee stains to help absorb the liquid.
When laundry day comes, be sure to set your machine to the hottest water temperature that is safe for your fabric and use a color-safe bleach if needed. Run an extra rinse cycle after washing to make sure all traces of detergent and stain remover are gone. Hang your clothes up to dry or put them in the dryer on the lowest heat setting possible.
