Tea bag stains on the kitchen floor, is one of the most common issues I have to deal with in my school and is one of the most annoying issues I deal with every day. (staff who cannot be bothered to walk to the bin with their mug, before dumping the tea bag)
However, there is a solution! I use Jangro Cream Cleaner for the job. It cuts through the stain with tea stain without any effort.
Of course, do not need to use Jangro brand products, as any cream cleaner will do just as good job. (Do not use VIM)
For this job, you will need:
- Your choice of Cream Cleaner
- A green and yellow scouring sponge (Do not use steel wool scouring pads, as they will scratch the floor!)
- A green bucket, filled with diluted disinfectant or hard floor cleaner. (I use Jangro Cleaner Heavy Duty)
- A green socket mop head on a green handled pole
- A yellow wet floor sign
- PPE – Green rubber gloves
First, collect your equipment and put on your PPE. Now squirt a pea sized amount of cream cleaner onto the green side of your scouring sponge. Gently work the cream into the stain until it lifts. Repeat this, until all the stains have been removed. Rinse the mop in your bucket of diluted disinfectant and wipe over the area you have just been working on. Once the floor dries. Remove PPE and return all equipment to the cleaning store. Once the floor dries, you can remove the wet floor sign.
For stains on kitchen worktops, you use the same method as above, by applying cream cleaner to the green side of your scouring sponge and gently work in. Instead of using a mop and bucket to finish the job, use your favorite kitchen spray. (Do not use any bleach based products on worktops) I use Cleaner Heavy Duty in a trigger spray bottle, but any kitchen spray will work as good. Use the yellow side of the sponge to wipe clean and allow to air dry.
