It might seem simple, but Lauren Haynes, a cleaning expert at Star Domestic Cleaners says it works. “Run cold water through the front and back of the stain until you manage to clean it,” says Haynes. It should work well if the stain is fresh.

Alberto Navarrete, cleaning expert and general manager of Emily’s Maids, recommends vinegar to anyone wondering how to remove coffee stains. Vinegar works well because the acid in it degrades the coffee stain. He recommends mixing vinegar and water and scrubbing the stain with a towel dipped in the mixture until it comes out.
When you’re trying to figure out how to remove coffee stains, your mind probably doesn’t go to shaving cream. “Shaving cream contains active ingredients such as surfactants and cleansing agents that are like the ones found in other household soaps,” says Haynes. “To clean coffee stains with shaving cream just rub, rinse with water, and repeat if necessary.” Make sure you aren’t believing these cleaning myths.
