How to Remove Coffee and Tea Stains
Featured Pro: Eric Stromer Category: Home Improvement Time: 1:58
ERIC STROMER: Hey, I’m Eric Stromer, and this is your GMC Trade Secret.
What do you do when you get coffee on your favorite shirt? Well, I’m going to show you how to get it out using things around your home.
Like most clothing stains, you want to get to coffee stains as soon as possible. Begin by placing a light-colored cloth underneath the stain so it can’t spread to other areas of the garment. Next I’m going to place this cloth on top of the stain to absorb as much liquid as I can and to avoid spreading the stain.
Next I’m going to pour some soap right on top of the stain and work it in with my fingers. This is a mild dish soap. Now I’ll go ahead and rinse it with cold water.
Now, if you still see some residual staining, you can resort to white vinegar. And what you do is you mix one part vinegar with two parts water, and then you soak the area in the solution.
Now, that worked pretty well. But if you have a really stubborn coffee stain, let me show you another technique. I’m going to use an egg yolk to remove the stain. I’m going to beat an egg yolk in a container to work the yolk directly into the stain.
Next I’m going to blot away the additional egg and then rinse it with water. Boy, that really got it out. Now, you may need to repeat the process a few times. But when you’re done, the shirt should be ready to throw in the washing machine like normal. Just check to make sure the stain is really gone before you stick it in the dryer.
Now if you spill coffee on your favorite shirt, don’t worry about it.
