How can I get coffee stains out of my white cups? I soaped and scrubbed them hard, but it didn't work.

  • Before using the nasty chemicals in oxy clean use a 50/50 vinegar and water solution to soak overnight and then rinse and wash with soap. Works great for all of our cups.

  • I concure with lovemydog, vinegar and water. soaking in bleach helps but sometimes if you use to much it will turn the cups yellow so you want to be very careful
