Frequently Asked Questions

Are coffee stains permanent?

You will be glad to know that coffee stains are not permanent. You can remove the dark color of coffee from anything you want- you just need to follow the right method to do that!

Can I remove coffee stains from white clothes?

Yes. You can remove coffee stains from white clothes by following the same methods mentioned above. An additional tip will be to soak the white cloth in a mixture of one gallon of water and one-fourth cup of chlorine bleach. Let it sit for at least five minutes, and rinse with normal water.

When should I take my coffee-stained cloth to a professional?
