Coffee and tea are both tough stains, especially if they are not treated when fresh. So to remove them effectively, they need to be pre-treated. One of the most effective solution to remove coffee or tea from clothes is Ariel powder, as coffee and tea stains are bleachable/oxidisable stains. Ariel powder detergent has bleach that treats bleachable stains effectively. So follow the instructions below and get rid of those pesky coffee or tea stains in the 1st go.
Tea and coffee are great tools to help you get through the day, but what about your clothes? When those drops of your hot drinks fall, you can be left with tea stains all over your blouse.
The myth may be that baking soda is best for coffee stain removal, but Ariel knows another way that doesn’t involve experimenting. Watch our step by step guide on how to get rid of coffee and tea stains from clothing, or read the instructions below.
Remove coffee stains
Prepare a Soaking Solution
First up, you’ll need to pre-treat the tea and coffee stained garment. Fill a sink or bucket with warm water and add half a scoop of Ariel Washing Powder. Mix the solution by hand until the detergent is completely dissolved.
Add your tea and coffee stained garments to the solution and leave to soak for an hour. If the stained garment keeps floating to the top, place a white towel on top of it to keep it fully immersed in the soaking solution.
Preparing for wash
Gently wring out the excess water before adding it to your wash with similar items.
Add detergent based on the instructions on your pack.
Load your garment into the washing machine with other, similar items and wash on your usual cycle, at the highest temperature shown on the care label.
Then, when the wash cycle is over, simply remove the items and you’re ready to go.
Effective stain removal on many stains
When you’re enjoying a nice cup of tea, you’re likely to encounter other stains, too. Chocolate from the biscuits may find itself on your favourite blouse, or jam from your morning toast may slide onto your jeans. Don’t worry about it: Ariel has those stains covered, too.
For whiter whites and tough stain removal, wash with Ariel Matic Front Load, if you have front load fully automatic washing machine or Ariel Matic Top Load if you have top load fully automatic machine. If you own a semi-automatic washing machine, choose simple Ariel powder detergent. It can’t replace the feeling of that first coffee, but clean, fresh, stain free clothes are another great way to start the day.
