Have you been wondering about giving “Butter Coffee” a try? First, there’s the different ways you can make it: just add unsalted butter, or butter and coconut oil, or maybe butter and MCT Oil (that’s medium chain triglyceride oil), or maybe really go for it and buy the expensive coffee and upgraded MCT Oil to make your butter coffee “bulletproof,” as they say. There are different ways to brew the coffee, and different equipment options for blending up the coffee and butter. Any new trend has its devotees who swear by it, going head-to-head with those who aren’t so impressed. Whatever you decide about butter coffee, if you (or your best friend who swears by it) spill any, at least you don’t have to wonder how you’ll get a butter coffee stain out!
With so much added oil in the coffee, a butter coffee stain requires more attention than a regular coffee stain, which usually comes out just by adding Clorox® Regular Bleach2 along with your favorite detergent. With butter coffee, you simply can’t skip pretreating to break up the oil before bleaching away the coffee! Here’s a quick how-to for butter coffee stain removal on white bleachable items.*
Washable items with color (or white items with spandex) start out with the same pretreatment step, but use a different bleach product to work on the coffee part of the stain:
Now if the top of the blender flies off and the butter coffee gets on your clothes (not to mention around your kitchen), you are ready to handle it. And for your counters, break out the 409®!!
*Always avoid bleaching wool, silk, mohair, leather and spandex.
