Default How remove black tea stain

I LOVE Earl Grey teas. BUT!.....

How does one remove the stain they leave? I have it in all my tea
cups, some which are collectible Otagiri's. I know that elbo grease,
a dobi pad, and some dish detergent will do the job, but some of my
Otagiri's have gold around the top edge and I don't like using
abrasives on that thin layer of gold. Any suggestions?

TIA

Bleach.


OK. I've tried bleach, oxi, bicarb, etc. All they do is bleach the
stain white. Bicarb doesn't even do that. Problem is, the material
leaves a glaze of stain which is still there, it's jes bleached
white, so looks gone.

I've found not bleaching the stain and actually removing the thin
patina of stain with mild abrasives to be a better solution. I use a
dobie pad. I think my best defense is to not drink blk teas or even
use my more valuble cups.

Thanks fer the help.

I use a paste of bicarb and dish washing liquid. the bicarb provides the mild abrasive without being to abrasive.
