I have a heavily stained white tea mug. What can I do?
soaking isn't helping. Maybe I'll soak it in boiling water and washing up liquid.
It's a mug, the stain's not gonna have soaked in, just man up and scrub that shit off. Honestly, you people.
:) I love that word, thank you for brightening my day even more dan
to shift stains on my trainers etc, would prob work on a mug.
he'd have been useful when I chucked a load of sloe gin up the walls
Stick your teaspoons while you're at it to freshen them up at the same time. WIN
It'll be sparkling in no time
I've watched a lot of How Clean in Your House and this seems to be applicable to everything.
can I use those?
try *drinking* your alcohol before it goes bad, ffs.
and are left with half a squeezed lemon, pop it in the mug with some boiling water and leave it to soak.
NB If it's mega-brown then the glaze has probably gone, so it'll re-brown itself pretty quickly anyway.
I'm going for this RIGHT NOW
sell some of them to some bloody vegan organic chef and buy yourself a new mug with a comedy slogan on it. Use the old mug as a flower pot and impress the sort of indie girls who are into libraries and knitting. Then throw your remaining lemons at them.
I'd like to see him stick it out for a whole year. Pfft.
Spunk off velvet anyone?
What are the rules?
photos! document this success
i woul dlove to drink a whole cup of tea out of that mug
or are those lemons really small? Like, really really small?
it it and somehow clean the much all on its own without you even bothering to remove his 'accidental spillage' from it, or just wait until a female of some description comes round
srsly they are stubborn, but if the surface of your mug is not pitted/scratched then the stain will go if you use a scourer (a lot) otherwise acids or alkalis can help shift it.
If it really a true stain then bleaching could remedy it.
why not mugs?
