How to Remove Coffee Rings - Circles of contention
How do you remove coffee stain rings from furniture like a desktop? Coffee stains are circles of contention and the bane of all confirmed coffee drinkers. Every morning I stumble to the desk, coffee mug in hand, and start my morning ritual.
If my brain hasn't fired it's pretty certain that a coffee ring will soon be stain--uh, decorating--my desktop. That leaves me with two alternatives: Leave the coffee stain circle or remove it.
Cleaning tips and coffee art
Most mornings I don't move fast enough or even recognize that the rings have begun formation so they're pretty dry by the time I detect a problem. Now, I don't consider the stains works of art but more like blundering deposits of brain fuel.
Why am I consumed with figuring out to get rid of these coffee stains on my desktop? Because these days I'm using my mom's good dining room table as a desk.
