How to remove a coffee stain – Trusted and Proven Techniques

Coffee stains are amongst the most stubborn stains that your neatly pressed shirt or fabric can catch. So, if your shirt or some other fabric has caught one, you need not worry as we are going to discuss some trusted and proven ways of getting rid of the coffee stain. 

How to remove a coffee stain from synthetic fabric?

Acrylic, polyester, nylon, and any other man-made fabric is usually classified as synthetic fabric. When it comes to durability, synthetic fabric surpasses natural fabric and this is the very same reason that coffee stains caught by the synthetic fabric are relatively easy to get rid of. 

Before removing the coffee stain from a synthetic fabric, you need to collect a sponge, a dry cloth, white vinegar, rubbing alcohol, dishwashing detergent, and dry cloth. 

At the onset, you’ll use a dry cloth to blot or dry the coffee stain. The dry cloth will remove excessive coffee by absorbing it. You should avoid rubbing the dry cloth on the coffee stain as doing so will only expand the stain as it will penetrate deep into the fabric. So, always blot and never rub when it comes to removing coffee stains.

After blotting the stain, you’ll mix a half-teaspoon of detergent in warm water. Then, add one white vinegar to the solution. Once your solution is ready, stoak your stained fabric in it for at least 20 minutes. 

Now, pick your fabric and wash it until the stain is removed. Voila! Your fabric is neat and fresh again. 

How to remove a coffee stain from cotton fabric?

Unlike synthetic fabric, a coffee stain sustained by a cotton piece — natural fabric — requires immense effort. Fortunately, there are 2 proven methods of removing the coffee stains from cotton or linen fabric. 

Method number 1

The first method of removing the coffee stain from cotton fabric is almost similar to that of removing a coffee stain from synthetic fabric. To begin with, collect dry cloth, rubbing alcohol, warm water, a sponge, white vinegar, and dishwashing detergent. 

You’ll use a dry cloth to blot or dry the coffee stain. The dry cloth will remove excessive coffee by absorbing it. You should avoid rubbing the dry cloth on the coffee stain as doing so will only expand the stain as it will penetrate deep into the fabric. So, always blot and never rub when it comes to removing coffee stains.

After blotting the stain, you’ll mix a half-teaspoon of detergent in warm water. Then, add one white vinegar to the solution. Once your solution is ready, stoak your stained fabric in it for at least 20 minutes. 

Before washing the cotton fabric, you need to rinse alcohol from the fabric. Now wash the cotton piece until the stain is removed. 

Method 2

Collect a temperature display kettle, a rubber band, and a large bowl. 

Expand your stained cotton fabric all over the bowl and use a rubber band to secure the cotton piece. 

Once your cotton piece is secured, increase the temperature to 200 degrees  Fahrenheit using the display kettle to boil the water. Then, pour this boiled water on that place of cotton fabric that has sustained a coffee stain. During the whole procedure, you need to be extra vigilant as there’s a risk that you can get yourself burned. The super-boiled water will hopefully remove the coffee stain. However, if the stubborn stain doesn’t give away that easily, you will use fresh water and pour it over the stain. 

If you are a novice, there is a greater probability that you will damage your cotton fabric whilst removing the coffee stain. So, this leads us to 3rd and most trusted method.
