Bleachable Moment – Getting That Stubborn Coffee Stain Out!

We have a house full of coffee drinkers around here and one of the things that chaps my hide is the stained coffee cups.  If it was just us who drank out of them, I guess it’s one thing but if someone were to come over and want a cup of coffee, I’d have cups that look like they’ve never been cleaned!  Embarrassing!  Thankfully, with a tiny bit of Clorox bleach and water, I can get those stains out in less than 10 minutes!

Clorox Bleach has been used for generations.  It’s one of those household cleaners that does a big job with such a tiny amount. That means you’re saving cleaner and money, while sanitizing.  Clorox Bleach is one of those cleaners that you use and just know that it has done its job.  You feel and see clean.  And to boot, it’s pretty friggin’ cheap!  Seriously, when you think about how far this big ol’ bottle will go and you’re only spending less than $2 bucks, well duh, it’s a no brainer.

While my usual places to use Clorox bleach are in the bathroom and laundry whites, I have several other uses for this multipurpose cleaner.  It’s fantastic at cleaning off mildew, spraying down plastic patio chairs, whitening sinks, and disinfecting yuck! I wanted to share this with you because if you’re anything like me, you have several of these stained coffee cups in your cabinet right now!  And NOOOOO, the dishwasher does not get the stains out.  And if you wait too long to clean them, scrubbing doesn’t even work well.

Notice that there is NO splash!



Just take a teaspoon of Clorox bleach to a sink full of water.  Toss in your cups and let sit for about 10 minutes.  Wipe with your sponge, wash and rinse well.  See it for yourself!  It works and my cup looks brand new again.


I shared my Clorox bleachable moment, what’s yours?    It’s always fun to hear how others use bleach because sometimes, you get some cool, unique ideas!  I encourage you to share how you bleach it away with Clorox and see if you run across any tips that you didn’t know!

    I have the most amazing Clorox bleachable moments when I do my laundry and seem to get it on whatever the heck I am wearing! I love the smell of Clorox bleach on my towels and white… but you now can find me filling the washer topless!
