Old coffee tends to have a pungent smell. The smell is quite unpleasant to most people. Coffee odors often linger in cups and mugs if you let it sit. For instance, if a mug spills coffee in your car, dashboard, upholstery, and other such areas, it creates a terrible odor.
The best solution on how to remove coffee odor is by using baking soda. It works by absorbing coffee smell naturally. At the same time, baking soda assists in removing stains, thanks to its powerful scrubbing agents. Also, baking soda doesn’t leave any stains, making it ideal for use on leather and any fabric to get rid of coffee stains and odor.
Take some baking soda and scoop 1 tablespoon. Pour it in coffee mugs, decanters, and other such containers. Next, fill the containers with water. Allow the contents to sit undisturbed overnight. Next, rinse the containers to eliminate any odors left behind.
Next, sprinkle some baking soda over clothing, upholstery, and carpets. Allow the sprinkled baking soda to sit on the surfaces overnight. It’ll absorb any odors on the surfaces. You can vacuum the upholstery and carpets or launder the clothing to remove the applied baking soda.
Next, mix water with baking soda in the ratio of 1:3 respectively in a large cup. Use a toothbrush to swirl the mixture until it forms the consistency of a paste.
Take the prepared paste and a toothbrush. Use them to scrub any dried or spilled coffee. Doing so will remove any coffee stains and coffee odors.
