Latte, Cappuccino, Mocha: How To Beat Coffee Stains

Coffee stains can be tricky, and with so many varieties you may find yourself with extra burned on. We’ve got the tips to beat them here, with Vanish.


A delicious mix of espresso and milk, the perfect start you your day. Stain wise, due to its high milk content, this one is relatively easy to remove from your clothing if you're able to rinse it out as soon as possible.


Cappuccino is known for its foam, and although it hides much of the liquid underneath the foam itself can still leave a mark or two, especially if sprinkled with chocolate. Remember with all coffee stains it's important not to rub the stain in when you receive them, as this makes them far more difficult to remove.


This coffee contains mostly espresso, with only a little drop of milk. This will make it a little harder to remove, and darker in colour, but nothing that Vanish Power O2 Powder can't handle.


This chocolaty delight is made with espresso, milk and usually a cocoa powder or syrup. Cocoa powders contain oils which will make a mocha coffee stain tougher to remove, so it's important to soak the stain, or pre-treating it, before washing. The most effective method for removing any oil or fat stain is a gel based stained remover, so Vanish Oxi Action Gel might be the best solution for this.


Due to its high volume of coffee particles, an espresso coffee stain can be one of the toughest. Despite being small in size they pack a punch, so immediately dab the stain, pulling away the excess spill as soon as possible. Pre-treating is essential.
