To remove stains of coffee and tea, rub the spots with a little borax, and soak for half an hour in cold water; then hold the fabric over the mouth of a deep bowl, and pour boiling water through the spot.

Another method of removing coffee stains, is to rub the stained portion with pure glycerin. This will remove stains of coffee and even of cream, from woolen and other materials. The stained place should be afterward well washed with lukewarm water, and ironed on the under, or wrong side, until dry.
