Cleaning stainless steel coffee mug
Dirty coffee stained stainless steel mug
Add a bit of automatic dishwasher powder detergent (I currently have Planet brand so even your green detergents should work) and fill, all the way to the top, with hot water, water straight from the tap will work too but it may need to sit a little longer.
Let sit overnight or for a few hours depending on severity of stains, covered might help a bit too. A little light scrubbing, sometimes just a bit of swishing of water gets it all off, and you have a bright and shiny coffee mug again.
I've also had success cleaning ceramics mugs this way but can't find any other way to easily clean my stainless steel mug.
