How to Remove Ice Tea Stains.

Ice Tea is simply tea on ice. Whether it’s Lipton, Celestial Seasonings, Peet’s, or Starbuck it is still tea, so we need to address this stain the same way we would address any tea stain. Plant base stains such as a tea stain falls into the Tannin Stain category. As with all tannin stains it is always best to remove the stain as soon as it happens, while the stain is wet it is much easier to remove. The longer we wait the more difficult it will become to remove the stain and the stain will set and oxidize over time.
