I’m the queen of clean – here’s how to get stubborn tea stains out of your mugs WITHOUT putting them in the dishwasher | The Sun

IS THERE anything more frustrating than putting your cup in the dishwasher repeatedly only for it to still be covered in tea stains?

We think not, but fortunately, there are lots of ways you can banish stubborn stains without the need for scrubbing.

Luckily, the queen of Clean, Lynsey Crombie has revealed her best methods for getting rid of the pesky stains.

The cleaning expert revealed that denture tablets work wonders at removing tea stains, which are particularly hard to remove thanks to a component calling tannin.

Tannin is often used to dye leather and make ink which explains why it stains cups so much.

Lynsey also recommends: "Use Astonish Clean & Revive, which will leave your mugs looking brand new."
