How to Get Coffee Stains Out of Your Floor Mats

Starting your day with a nice cup of coffee is great. Hitting the brakes and spilling it on the carpeting, not so much.

Step 1:
Soak up as much of the spill as possible, as quickly as possible, using a clean towel. Apply pressure from the palm of your hand or fist to absorb as much of the liquid as possible.

Step 2:
If your coffee was black, or contained no milk, Autoblog.com suggests mixing a solution of 1/3 white vinegar to 2/3 water in a spray bottle. Spray the mixture onto the stain and blot again with a clean towel.

Step 3:
Let the vinegar mixture soak for a few minutes.

Step 4:
Lightly rinse with cold water.

Step 5:
Using a new towel, blot the area again until it is dry.

If you drink your coffee with milk, you'll need to complete an extra step in this process. According to Autoblog.com, prior to applying the vinegar mixture to the stain, you should first use a spray bottle to apply a mixture of a teaspoon of enzyme detergent and a cup of water. Allow that to sit for 10 to 15 minutes. Then, using a towel, blot up the spot and use a light brush agitation if needed. This extra step helps to break up the protein stain from the milk.
