How to Brighten a Coffee & Tea Stained Mug

I love this mug. If you visit my house and I serve you a beverage in this mug, it means I love you too.

Ever since we started cleaning my mug in the dishwasher, I noticed it doesn't look as bright. The insides are have a dull brown tint. It is certainly not guest worthy.

Fortunately, I know of two easy ways to brighten up a coffee or tea stained mug without chlorine bleach or harsh chemicals.

  • Cheap-o option: Put a small squirt of dish detergent on a damp sponge. Sprinkle about 1 tsp table salt on sponge. Scrub the inside of the mug with that and rinse.
  • Most powerful option: Rub the inside of the mug with salt sprinkled on a halved lemon. Rinse. 

My favorite mug has an illustration by my dear friend artist Mark Ziemann (aka Z-man) on it. He's the same person who drew the illustration for the tattoo I got to celebrate my 24th birthday. I'll share that with you another day!
