Tip Tuesday– Coffee Stains

I don't normally write about cleaning but coffee stains drive me absolutely crazy. I come from a family of coffee drinkers. We all have our own Tervis Tumblers and use them multiple times a day always looking for a caffeine refill.

We have one tumbler that just seems to soak up all the coffee. It is almost impossible to clean even in the dishwasher.

Here's my tip fight coffee stains with toothpaste. Actually I fight just about any surface stain with tooth paste. 


Wet the brush put a small amount on an old toothbrush and go to town. This took me about 10 mins. If the stain proves to be more difficult than expected add a small amount of baking soda and white vinegar.

The cup looks brand new and I am no longer embarrassed to carry it around.

Would like to thank all you Weekend Crafters for making 2013 amazing! I can't believe after just 4 months how much Weekend Craft has grown. Facebook has exploded in the last month! Looking forward to 2014 and what lies ahead!
