Another scenario could be that you have a special hand painted wine glass or Tervis plastic tumbler and you found out after you put it in the dishwasher that it is not dishwasher safe!
Either of these could result in a stain or an odor. Let's see how to get rid of those stains and odors so you can enjoy your favorite Yeti, Tervis, or special cup longer!
How To Remove Stains From Your Favorite Coffee Mug
Of course I googled How To Clean A Yeti first and was simply shocked at what people were saying to do to clean them. From Ammonia to Bleach to other chemical based cleaning methods everyone was proposing, I was set on making sure my Earth, Pet, Human Cleaning methods were also Yeti Approved.
How To Clean A Yeti or Tervis Cup
1. Don’t use the dishwasher! Yes a Yeti is dishwasher safe BUT that is more for routine cleaning of it. Hot water will make all odors and stains set in the Yeti Cup and it's top! If the goal is to get the stain out then step 2 is for you!
2. Get a Non Scratch Sponge. Pour some baking soda on it.
3. Put 1/2 Cup of White Distilled Vinegar in the Yeti.
4. Dip the sponge with baking soda in the Yeti to make a paste with the White Distilled Vinegar and scrub.
5. Rinse thoroughly! To get into the crevices, I have found that a baby bottle cleaning brush bristles are great!
