If your mugs, are looking a little tea-stained, rub a teaspoon of baking soda (no water) onto the area using a dry paper towel and it will magically come off. Yep, that’s right, no water. It sounds weird but it works because baking soda is abarasive and scratches off the stain.

I’m pretty sure my granny would have done this. She would also find it hilarious that this is now considered a ‘hack’. She was a no nonsense lady in an immaculate house, with a puff of mauve hair and a budgie on her shoulder. #goals.

We do life hacks every Monday on Ladyland. Have you got a good one?
