How to Remove Stains From Coffee, Ink, Wine, and More

Coffee or Tea

In a spray bottle, combine 1 cup white vinegar and 1 cup water. Spritz the stain, then blot with a damp cloth. Next, dab with diluted ammonia (1 tablespoon clear ammonia in 1 cup water). Blot with a clean, damp cloth, followed by a dry cloth.

Apply a piece of ice until the gunk hardens, then gently scrape it off with a comb or a butter knife. Dab on some clear dish soap to dislodge any residue. Rinse with a clean, damp cloth.

Red Wine

Blot—don’t rub—with a clean, damp cloth, then use a fresh cloth to apply white wine (yep!); blot again. Still there? Sprinkle on baking soda, let sit for 20 minutes, and remove with yet another cloth.
