WFMW - Cleaning coffee Stains

Over at We Are THAT Family, there's a themed Works for Me Wednesday this week. We're to share a cleaning tip. The one I'm going to share is one my mom taught me when I was really little (she gave me the task of going through all the mugs and cleaning the coffee and tea stains out of them, probably to keep me occupied), so I thought it was something that everyone knew. After looking around last week on the web, trying to figure out how to get the sour milk smell out of my daughter's lunch box thermos, I discovered that a lot of people were asking about getting the coffee stains out of their thermoses.

My suggestion: Baking Soda!

Make a paste of baking soda and water and rub the coffee stains with it, they'll disappear almost immediately and then rinse. It works on mugs, sinks, coffee pots, etc. The nice thing is that baking soda is safe to ingest if you happen to not get it rinsed completely.

For more great cleaning tips, check out the WFMW post over at We Are THAT family!

Good tip, I don't reach for baking soda as often as I should!

It really is a miracle cleaner for this particular job. I just learned about it recently and can't believe I never thought to try it before!

Click my name for some other baking soda cleaning ideas. It makes a nice facial scrub!
