If you consider yourself a regular coffee, tea, or hot chocolate drinker, you probably have a kitchen cabinet full of stained mugs that refuse to scrub clean. Thankfully, there is a better solution that doesn't involve continuing to fight those stains with a sponge, bleach, and elbow grease.
The answer to your coffee or tea stain problems is Cafiza: an awesome espresso machine cleaning product that is popular amongst professional baristas... but also doubles as an extremely effective ceramic and glass cleaner, as well.
Cafiza contains trisodium phosphate, which is a highly soluble inorganic compound with the power to remove tough stains. It is safe to use on all materials except aluminum and zinc, and is especially helpful with cleaning drip coffee pots, French presses, Chemex, and ceramic V60 drippers.
