Another personal question for you

Do you drink coffee or tea daily?  Do you use the same mug or cup even though you have 18 others to pick from?

I had a favorite mug for a long, long time.  It broke.  I can't remember what happened but I had to select another and one of Petey's lighthouse mugs looked perfect.


I was correct!  It holds the right amount of java for my morning blast of caffeine and the handle fits my mitt like a glove.  It's all about the handle for me.  I need all four fingers to settle in; no squeezing.

Here's my personal question: does the inside of your mug look like this?


It does?  Whew!  I know it's possible to scrub that stain out of there with some elbow grease and chemicals but I simply don't see the point.

I love this mug so much that the chip on the opposite rim doesn't bother me - unless I switch hands.

  2. You can use the Mr. Clean white pads to get the stain out without scrubbing.
    I use James Brandish's (I know that's not how you spell it) mugs. I have all 4 in his flower series and yes, all 4 fingers fit! You drank out of one yesterday!

  4. My FAVORITE mug broke last week. :( I believe that the stains are like a seasoned cast iron pan, don't mess with it!

  5. Every Christmas we get new favorite mugs. For 5 years our grandkids and grand-puppies have been putting their faces on my morning cup of coffee. We have quite a collection and Yes I still have them in the 5th wheel and they will be making to move into the motorhome. You can't start your day without a grandchild on your cup!! I use baking soda and that cleans tea and coffee stains out easily without all the ugly stuff in my cup!

      If I had grandchildren, Dill, I'd be doing the same thing.
