Works for Me – Getting Stains Out of your Tea/Coffee Cups the Natural Way


We drink a lot of tea around here. Good, strong Persian tea or the occasional blend from the Roswell Tea House (mmm mmm Magic Moon and Anti-Aging blends). While I love the tea, I hate serving guests tea in stained cups. I used to pour a little bleach in and swish it around to remove the stains but wanted to find a less, uh, toxic alternative. So I Googled it and found a super simple suggestion that really works. Simply dump a little sea salt in your mug and rub it with a damp rag. Those stains rub right out.

Really works for me! This is part of the Works for Me Wednesday series, hosted at WeAreThatFamily. Lots of great tips there every Wednesday.
