My mug is glass and it soon discolours, I use a sponge with a white scoury back.   After one week that becomes so discoloured it has to go.    Perhaps the mug is worse because I don't have milk !  :unsure:  Sometimes I pile them into the D/washer, but that only goes on once a week.    Makes Notes:   Must buy more glass mugs.  :D  Mrs B

Sometimes my mind wanders, if found please return.

Like the dentures tablets, Ten!

We've never had a dishwasher, but I understand that they're pretty good at the job!

One problem with making tea in a mug - which we always do, is that the tannin (?) stains just build up over a few days, and make it all look a bit 'basic'.

I usually bleach the lot every now and then, and then give them a good rinse, which is nice for the first day or so...
We did try white tea once, but that didn't last more than an hour or so before being chucked...

Don't denture tablets work as well?   so I'm told .

PG Tips in my mug , one bag usually makes two drinks.

Alkaselzer is supposed to be good. But it's also supposed to be good for toilets.

have used a couple of drops of cothes washing liquid, top up with warm water and leave overnight.  Like the ritual of using a teapot, have decided that I am turning into my mum.

I think that's a fate that befalls many of us  :wub: ::) :lol:
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

When the tannin has built up to a decent thickness, I mount the mug in the chuck of the lathe and remove (most of it) with a piece of cast off metal appropriately shaped.
