Who does not like coffee? Of course, besides tea lovers! No matter how much you love drinking coffee, you must agree that spilling coffee is one of the worst things that can happen to us. Why? Because, this kind of stain can be hard to remove over time. To make life easier for coffee lovers, we present several methods that will allow you to remove coffee stains without any unnecessary effort:
You poured a cup of your favorite coffee on this amazingly expensive rug? If so, do not worry. Fortunately, you only need to help yourself with beer – of course in the work, without drinking it. Did you think that the only use of beer is to increase the pressure of pub-goers? Well, besides, the beer will also help you to remove coffee stains from the rug. All you have to do is pour some beer on the stain and wait for it to work. Gently rub the beer into the carpet material. It may happen that the action will have to be repeated several times. However, this method also has one big minus. We’re wasting good-quality beer on something as insignificant as a coffee stain!
Are you in a café with an old friend and in the perspective of a half hour you have an important business meeting? Just by accident, you spilled coffee on your shirt, after a friend told you this ridiculous joke? Have you just realized that for this extremely important meeting, you will have to go in a stained shirt? Is salt nearby? If so, you’re lucky. You just need to sprinkle the stain with salt and allow it to penetrate into the fabric. After a while, remove the salt with a paper towel. This method will not guarantee you to completely get rid of the stain, but it will increase its visibility and prevent it from spreading.
To effectively remove stains from coffee, you can also use vinegar. The effectiveness of this method will depend on how intense the stain is. If the stain is small, all you need to do is put a towel soaked in white vinegar on it and then wash it normally. If, however, the stain is large, it is necessary to pour the dirty mixture of 3 parts of vinegar and one part of water and leave for the whole night. Put the fabric into the washing machine, wash it and it will be new. Remember, however, that white vinegar does not smell too good, so it will be similar to your clothes.
If you just spilled coffee, but you have kids at home – you’re lucky. There is a high probability that you will have a packet of baby wipes at home. They are an effective stain remover, especially in the case of coffee stains on the carpet. Why? Because they absorb both liquid and stain. Did you think that baby wipes can only be used to clean your baby? Not true. All you need to do is wipe the coffee stain with a handkerchief and the stain will cease to exist before your eyes.
The fact that WD-40 can be used to get rid of coffee stains should no longer surprise most people, considering how many uses this product has. So what is the difference between WD-40 and the abovementioned possibilities? The point is that WD-40 will help you get rid of coffee stains not only from shirts, pants or carpets, but also from leather, from countertops or floor tiles. A big plus, right?
Regardless of what material has been stained with coffee, it’s enough to sprinkle with a bit of WD-40 and wait a while. Then simply wipe the surface with a clean cloth or wash in the washing machine. And … that’s all! It’s worth remembering that removing coffee stains is just a side feature of the WD-40. He can do a lot, much more. Thanks to that, it makes everyday life easier. Therefore, remember to have a can or two at hand.
