Immediately wipe up any coffee spilled. Get some mild soap and lukewarm water, mix them together. Create foam, enough to be picked up. Place this foam on the stain, and wipe clean with a dry cloth.

Sprinkle something absorbent such as cornmeal on the wet coffee stain. This will soak up the liquid as well as the color of the stain. Leave it for a while, allow it to dry. Gently brush off with a cloth.

While the above solutions may not get rid of the stain completely, especially with light-colored sheets. Try this foolproof method. Spray some WD-40 on the fresh or built-up stain, and start wiping off. Clean off the stain and soak any remaining WD-40 with a sponge. 

Pro Tip: Clean up any spillage as it happens, immediately. This will avoid stains and keep the fabric clean. Check out our blog on how you can remove coffee stains from the carpet easily.
