When you get ready to pour your morning cup of Joe, the last thing you want to see is a nasty stain staring back at you and spoiling your appetite. Luckily, we have the perfect homemade hack to fade the filth in minutes! Before you know it, your favorite mug will be spotless and ready for your caffeine fix.
Step 1: Weaken Stain
Add a few squirts of lemon juice into the mug and swirl it around so it touches all stained spots.
Next, pour hot water into the mug, making sure all stained parts are submerged. Let the mixture sit for 15-20 minutes.
Step 2: Create Scrubbing Paste
Once the stain has been weakened, it's time to create the scrubbing paste. First, add about an inch of baking soda.
Then add a few drops of liquid dish soap.
Finish the paste with a few drops of water — just enough to create a pasty consistency.
Step 3: Get Scrubbing
Once you've create the paste, use a sponge to scrub the paste into the stained spots and watch it vanish before your eyes!
Now you can enjoy your morning java without the side of stains.
