When you think about it, mug stains are the least offensive kind of stains.

>> No.20367671

less offensive than gum stains?

Happened to me. Get a baby wipe and lightly rub. Works a charm everytime. I've had second hand books go from 'used' or 'acceptable' to 'very good' just from this method alone.

One day I will manipulate my children into setting this joke up so I can deliver that punchline. It was great.

My favorite is when the used book has an inscription like "To Jim from Doris, '77" and clearly only the first chapter was ever read.
