    Generally coffee stain can be taken off easily. I'm clumsy so it happened to me very often.

    Wet the stain with water and soap to then mop it up with kitchen towel. It is simple I know but it has always worked for me .

    Grandma tips if the stain is still on your tshirt after washing: mix warm water and yolk egg, put it on the stain, let it for few minutes and rinse it out.

    I love how an admin posts such a trivial topic :lol:

    I guess you could wear another shirt to work, if it happens again.

    What did you end up doing though? :dontknow:

    Trivial? This stain was big! Thanks for the tips and moral support gang, you'll be pleased to hear that I survived the day despite the stain trauma. I didn't use egg yolks or soap in this instance, instead I opted for a simple dabbing of a damp piece of kitchen towel. If I tried to handle a yolk I'd probably run into all sorts of trouble. The stain didn't go completely but it was definitely reduced. :congrats:

    Glad you got it sorted, Captain. You do remind me of Fred from scooby doo though with the 'gang' bit :pierre:
