Household Hints - Removing Tea Stains from Teacups and mugs

A delicious cup of freshly brewed tea is perfect just about any time of day, but tea stains are some of the most difficult to remove from cups and mugs! Here are a few of my favorite household hints for removing tricky tea stains:

  1. Barkeepers Friend removes tea stains better than almost anything else I've ever tried. It's a multi-use product, since you can also use it to get your stainless steel cookware gleaming, along with copper, and even porcelain surfaces. Just shake a little of the powder in, and scrub with a scrubby pad. It even works to remove built up stains.
  2. Baking soda - a little sprinkle of soda, a bit of elbow grease and you're good as new, or at least your precious teacup is.
  3. Regular table salt - again, a sprinkle of this works on tea stains, along with a good scrub and rinse.
