Try this method that utilizes a combination of common pantry staples to effortlessly remove the toughest of stains:


Toss a spoonful of baking soda and big splash of any type of vinegar in.


Your concoction bubbling up indicates that it’s working its magic.


Use a rag or sponge & give your cup a shake.


Rinse it out with fresh hot water to get rid of any lingering tastes.

THINGS TO AVOID WHEN CLEANING YOUR CUPS

steer clear of bleach

While bleach is a go-to for clothes washing and keeping your whites white, it will only do damage to your Greens Steel cup.

The very component that makes our steel stainless is easily stripped away by oxidizing agents like those found in bleach, making the cleaning technique actually counterproductive in this case. 

Stick to our trusty Baking Soda & Vinegar blend for any deep cleaning situations.

steel & steel don't mesh!

Steel wool, metal scrubber, wire brush... Whatever form it comes in, don’t use it! 

Despite our steel’s incredible durability, metal scrubbers can still leave their mark, forever scarring your cup and allowing residue to build up in the scratches. 

Play it safe and opt for nonabrasive sponges for scrubbing purposes.
