Have you ever wondered how caffeine affects the body and why it causes us to become addicted? This is how it works according to about.com, caffeine causes changes in the chemicals of your brain, mainly in 2 ways. It mimics adenosine, and binds to all the adenosine receptors in your brain. This prevents the real adenosine from doing its job, which happens to be the slowing down of nerve impulses and the causing of drowsiness. So your brain becomes more alert. Caffeine also increases the levels of dopamine in your brain, which improves your feeling of well-being and improves your mood. It’s this dopamine effect that is the root of caffeine’s addictive properties. I might not be able to kick your coffee addiction but I can help you remove a coffee or tea stain.

Coffee or tea stain removal: Using an eyedropper, flush the area with lemon or vinegar to remove color. Then treat with stronger bleach, if necessary. To remove sugar or milk, spray with the diluted dishwashing-soap mixture wash with an enzyme detergent.
