Coffee is a beverage which is loved by people across the globe. There are very few people who do not like to drink coffee. It is available in every household and everybody needs it early morning as soon as they wake up or after a long day at office or work. It is refreshment which energises us but most of us have also experienced coffee spill which often leaves coffee stains. We have to deal with this stain on carpet, clothes or our very own couch. If you think removing the coffee stain is a tedious work then you are wrong. You can easily remove the stain no time if you just act on time.
The moment the coffee gets spill on your favourite tee or skirt or any clothing as a matter of fact, you need to act quickly. The coffee stain should be first sponged clean and the cloth should be then soaked in steaming hot water for about 30 minutes. Heat the water depending on the tolerant level of the fabric. Wash the garments as you normally do and line it for drying. The stain will be removed in no time. You can also use an alternative method in order to clean the coffee stain.
You can use wet towel and some baking soda or a teaspoon of it. You need to wet the towel in really cold water and massage some baking soda on the coffee stain using that wet towel. Rinse off the baking soda completely and then wash it normally. The coffee stains will be cleaned from the fabric and you can have your clothes as good as new without any stains on it. However if you have a fabric which is not washable and it is stained, then you must take it to the professional cleaners and make sure you show them the stain marks so that they get it clean.
For cleaning up your carpet or furniture too you have to act quickly. If your carpet is stained with coffee, you can take a teaspoon of a mild detergent and mix it with half litre water.

If the stain is not removed using this mixture, you can try a 50/50 solution of water and vinegar and try cleaning it the same way as you did with the detergent. Another solution to this problem is to use liquid hand washing detergent, white vinegar and warm water. Mix a tablespoon of detergent with 2 cups of warm water and a tablespoon of vinegar together and blot the stain with it. Clean it with cold water after the stains is removed. These methods if used can help in cleaning coffee stains off the carpets.
