Do you love your morning cup of coffee as much as we do? Then you know how hard it is to find the perfect location for a mug of hot, delicious coffee! The problem with this drink is that it leaves stains, especially if you are drinking it black without any additives. In case you have just moved into a new place and not yet finished unpacking all your stuff, or maybe you’re just too lazy to put things away: there’s probably an unopened can of condensed milk on your kitchen counter. And now there’s a stain in front of it.
Coffee staining is an inevitable part of life—If you love coffee that much, we think you should see it as a sign from above! In any case, here are some tips on how to remove those nasty stains from your countertop.
How To Remove Coffee Stains From Countertop
What You’ll Need
- Cleaning supplies: Depending on how bad the stain is, you might need a scrub brush, dish soap, baking soda and a sponge.
- White paper: This is optional, but it can come in handy. We’ll explain why further down.
- Protective gloves: Preferably the ones made of rubber. They will help you get a better grip on the sponge and prevent your hands from getting stained.
- A wooden spoon
- A paper towel
Mix Baking Soda And Dish Soap
- First things first: you’ll need to clean the area where the coffee stain is located. This means removing any other stuff you might have on the countertop.
- Take a bowl, put a cup of baking soda in it and add some dish soap.
- Then, add some water and mix everything until you get a thick paste.
Scrub With Cream Cleanser
After you’ve used the baking soda and dish soap mixture to clean the stained area, use a clean sponge with cream cleanser to get rid of any last traces of the stain.
Try A Stain Remover
This is a good option to try if the above methods haven’t worked. We suggest a citrus-based product that you can get from your local grocery store. Be careful not to use a product meant for natural fabrics on synthetic materials.
Love it or hate it, coffee is a huge part of our culture. It’s important to be able to enjoy your daily cup of coffee without worrying about leaving a stain on your countertop. With the tips we’ve given you, you’ll be able to enjoy your beverage without a care in the world!
And remember: no matter how many tricks you use, cleaning your countertop daily with a wet cloth will be much more effective than cleaning it once a week. That way, you’ll always have a clean and stain-free countertop that you can use to display all your decorative items!
