Coffee spills happen to the best of us, and dealing with coffee stains on clothes can be a real hassle. But fear not! In this guide, we'll walk you through the step-by-step process of effectively removing coffee stains from various types of fabrics, including white clothes, jeans, shirts, and more. Say goodbye to those stubborn coffee marks!

Coffee stains are those frustrating brown spots that appear when your favorite morning brew decides to take an unplanned detour onto your clothes. They can be quite stubborn due to the pigments and oils present in coffee.

Why are coffee stains important to tackle?

  • Maintain your clothes: Coffee stains, if left untreated, can leave a permanent mark on your clothing, potentially ruining your favorite outfits.
  • Looking sharp: Keeping your clothes stain-free helps you look sharp & feel your best wherever you go.
  • Prolong clothing lifespan: Proper & effective stain removal can extend the life of your clothes, saving you money in the long run.

Types of coffee stains and various types of fabrics

Hapiso laundry pods are effective against a range of coffee stain scenarios:

  • Fresh Stains: For recent coffee spills, Hapiso's powerful formula quickly dissolves and removes the stain.
  • Old Stains: Even if the coffee stain has set in, Hapiso pods work to break down and lift the stain, rejuvenating your clothes.
  • Various Fabrics: Whether it's cotton, jeans, polyester, linen, or delicate silk sarees, Hapiso pods cater to different fabric types.

Here's how you can get rid of those coffee stains

  1. Act quickly

  2. The key to successfully removing coffee stains is to act fast. The longer the stain sits, the harder it becomes to remove. As soon as the spill happens, gently blot the stain with a clean cloth or paper towel to soak up as much of the liquid as possible.

  3. Rinse with cold water

  4. Hold the stained area under cold running water. This will help to prevent the coffee from setting into the fabric. Make sure the water flows from the back of the stain, pushing the coffee out of the fabric fibers.

  5. Pop the Hapiso laundry pod

  6. Place a Hapiso laundry pod directly into the washing machine drum before loading your stained clothes. The pod's dissolvable film ensures that the cleaning agents are evenly distributed during the wash cycle.

  7. Load the laundry

  8. Carefully place the coffee-stained clothing items into the washing machine drum. Be sure not to overload the machine to allow sufficient space for effective cleaning.

  9. Press start

  10. Select the appropriate wash cycle based on the fabric type and the machine's specifications. Then, press the start button and let the washing machine do its magic.

  11. Dry in the sun instead

  12. If the stain persists after washing, do not tumble dry the garment. Heat from the dryer can make the stain even more stubborn. Instead, air dry the clothing and repeat the stain removal process if necessary.

  13. Enjoy fresh clothes

  14. Once the wash cycle is complete, retrieve your clothes from the machine. You'll be greeted with clean, fresh-smelling garments, free from coffee stains.

Coffee stain removal tips

  • Patience: Removing coffee stains might require multiple attempts, so be patient and persistent.
