How to Remove Stains from Ceramic Mug Without Chemicals
As a coffee and tea lover, I am very familiar with the fact that if you have a well-loved ceramic mug, or a tea set of new bone china you use often, it will probably eventually get stained-especially with dark liquids, like many teas and coffee. There’s no need to rush to the store to spend money on intense chemical cleaners when this builds up-a little bit of baking soda, water, and vinegar is all you need.
You will only need…
-1 tablespoon of baking soda
-1/2 cup white distilled vinegar
-1/2 cup warm water
Note: Amounts can be changed, just be sure to have equal parts water and vinegar.
Pour 1 tablespoon of baking soda into your mug or cup. Make a solution of ? cup of white vinegar and ? cup of warm water, and pour this into the mug (make sure it covers all of the stained area.) Let this soak for a good 2 hours or so, and then rinse. You can let it sit for longer if need, or give it a gentle scrub at the end with a cloth.
Now sometimes some tea or coffee rings are nice, they can be a comforting testament to how much a mug is loved and enjoyed, but some you might want or need to clean. When that day comes, remember to check your pantry or kitchen cupboard and use these healthier alternatives to chemical cleaning products.
