Key steps to clean a coffee stain:
- It’s important to check the care label on your garment before attempting stain removal.
- Remember: heat can set the stain. Use cold water when treating a coffee stain and check that the stain has been removed before placing your garment in the tumble dryer.
- To finish up the stain removal process, wash with a laundry detergent that has stain-removing properties, like Persil Bio.
