As you savor the final sip of coffee, an unsightly ring appears on your favorite mug…
While that beverage was undoubtedly delicious, the tannins that impart the flavor to coffee can leave unsightly stains behind, your favorite hot beverage can become a foe.
When coffee vaporizes, the particles remain stationary on the spill's perimeter. Because the particles remain stationary rather than moving inward as the volume of coffee decreases, the stain's perimeter remains intact, forming a ring.
Depending on the mug's material and how long the stain has set, some of these coffee stains are easily removed, others such as stainless steel or stoneware, require special consideration and a little more effort.
While white is a popular choice for dishes, it can amplify the appearance of stains, and the pristine color may leave you wondering how to remove coffee stains from white mugs.
Use one of these simple methods below to remove coffee stains from mugs.
