How do I remove a hard-water stain from a Zodiaq kitchen counter?
I have tried a few things suggested by the manufacturer, or installer, or Home Depot: wash with soft white damp cloth (that did not help); windex on a soft white cloth left in place for a couple hours (ditto); distilled white vinegar on a soft white cloth left in place a couple hours (ditto); a HD (Zep) aerosol spray-on product for cleaning/polishing countertops (ditto). I have also seen baking soda recommended on a website and Bar Keeper's Friend. The stain was under a dish drainer where there must have been some dripping I was unaware of. Our water is from a well and very hard/mineral-laden. I am selling the house, and don't want to go to the expense of a professional refinisher unless necessary. Thanks for any suggestions; I am afraid to be too "vigorous" and damage the countertop. - Elise K.
