Hi, I'm Caitlin from My Gal Friday, and today I'm going to show you how to clean tea and coffee stains off of kitchen counters. So, you are going to need a mild dish detergent, a sponge and if it's been there for a while, you might need some baking soda. So, the first thing you want to do if it's a fresh stain, and you really want to get it while it's fresh; 'cause for example, this countertop is really porous, and it will really absorb the color quickly. So, you want to pat it up, we are going to do the coffee stains first. Thankfully we got this pretty quickly but I'm going to show you what to do even if you don't get it right away. I know sometimes you are rushing out of the house and you spill a little coffee and you come back at 5 and it's pretty stained. So what you want to do is spray it down I guess we will do the tea at the same time. They both take the same method so it will be easier that way. So, pat it down with your paper towel and take your spray bottle with your soapy water and you want to spray down the counter. Take another paper towel get ready and start scrubbing down the counter. I'm using the abrasive side but you want to make sure that your surface can take it first. So, just be really gentle, scrub it down. And then wipe it. And if you still see a stain there you can try a couple of things. The first thing that you can try is to take a little bit of baking soda and you can spray it down with a little bit of the water, the soapy water. And just rub it in. And you can let is sit on your stain spot for anywhere between 5 minutes and 45 minutes depending on how deep the stain is. And when you come back the baking soda acts as a scrubber so it's the little scrubby beads and you can work it in and hopefully the baking soda has absorbed your stain. Just scrub it in a little more. You want to rinse your sponge. I'm Caitlin from My Gal Friday and that is how to clean tea and coffee stains from your kitchen counter.
