Coffee can keep you awake and stimulate your brain. It’s a great beverage for keeping you on your toes. For some, it even calms the nerves and people who drink coffee can feel much more relaxed.

Interestingly enough, it's very easy to tell if someone is a coffee drinker by simply peeking into their cupboard.

Usually, their mugs have stubborn brown stains to prove it.

You’re sure to get your favorite mug back to looking brand new: All it takes is some baking soda.

Sprinkle a little baking soda onto the bottom of your stained cup add just enough water to form a paste, and scrub. Note that after successfully removing the marks, you should rinse and wash a cup well before using it.

  1. Try a paste of corn starch and vinegar: Apply and let sit for several minutes first before scrubbing.

We hope this comes in handy for all of our fellow sleep-deprived coffee lovers out there! Keep your favorite mugs squeaky clean and mornings enjoyable.
