Tip: Granite stains and WD-40

Just wanted to share a tip -- WD-40 takes out stains in granite! I was clipping some lilies and the reddish pollen fell on our granite countertop. It stained it immediately and spray cleaner wouldn't get it out. On a whim I sprayed it with WD-40 and wiped with a paper towel, and it took the stain out! I then sprayed the whole countertop with it and wiped it, and more and more orange came off on the towel.

    Interesting! I don't know if it was sealed before. It's a dark granite -- a mix of black and brown.
