    I usually fill the mugs / cups three quarters full of water then add a little Household Bleach (Sodium Hypochlorite) leave them overnight and then wash them with dish wash in the morning. P.S. I pour the Bleach water from the mugs into a fairly large container and soak the stainless steel knives, forks and spoon etc. it brightens them, in fact it's a good cleaner for any stainless steel.
