Hi all ! My tip this week is related to white coffee/tea mugs , cups and saucers. Now plain white crockery particularly white coffee mugs are not really a favourite with me . They are the kind you see in restaurants and hotel rooms ,but those are the ones I use currently as my landlord stocked the cupboards with the kind . The problem now is that after using them daily for tea they developed tea stains which wouldn't go after washing the mugs. But now I have a solution. And by solution I really mean a solution of water and Harpic White Bleach. Yes the trick is to add 2 capfuls of Harpic white Bleach (or similar bathroom bleach) to half a bucket(about 5 litres ) of water. Immerse all your cups , mugs and saucers in this solution in the bucket overnight. The crockery comes out pristine clean the next morning. All the stains are gone. Just wash all the glassware with warm soapy water the next day before using it to get rid of any mild bleachy smell that might linger.
No, the bleach does not harm the glassware as the solution is a weak one. You need to do this just once a month.
