Can you remove coffee stains in mugs with denture cleaners?
We’ve been noticing that our favorite mugs (We Are Happy to Serve You mugs, $12) were beginning to look a little worse for wear: they’ve become horribly tea stained! Then a colleague mentioned reading somewhere (Real Simple?) that you could use denture cleansers to remove tea and coffee stains from cups. Never ones to pass up clever how-to tip, we thought we’d give it a try. We picked up a box of Efferdent Plus (36 tablets for $3.50) and plopped one in. As you can see from the photos above, it worked! Fifteen minutes was all it took brighten up the mug. Chad wonders why this is better than soaking them in bleach? Could it be the minty freshness? Have you heard household tip that you’d like us test out? Let us know! — Angela M.
