How do I remove stains?

Coffee / Tea Stain Removal from Clothing

To remove a fresh coffee or tea stain, immediately pour boiling water over the stain until it disappears. Or, soak the stain with borax and water, then wash as usual. On old stains, make a paste of borax and water, leave on for 15 minutes, then wash.

When I had a coffee stain on my new suit, I used cold water. I would be afraid that the boiling water would shrink my suit.
