Counter top

This is a stain on my counter top from a bottle of cleaning product. How can I get it off? I have used bleach and magic eraser.

Cemical stain

    I had that happen too. I used a razor and lightly scraped it off. Good luck and scrape very lightly!!

    You might try soaking cotton balls or a white cloth with hydrogen peroxide and leaving it over the stained area overnight. It should at least lighten the stain and repeated applications may even completely remove the stain altogether.

    Maybe soft scrub and blue (no scratch scrubby)?

    soaking overnight you can use peroxide or bleach, I lighten my sink once a week with a cap full of bleach and an inch of water.

    What type of counter is it? What type of cleaning product made the stain? Depending on the countertop type will make a difference in the suggestions.

    A spray of clorox and let it set a while works for me. Hope this helps!

    None of those worked for me!! I need help!!!!

  • Try dipping a rag in egg yolk and cleaning with that. Works for some other stains...don't know if it would work for this one or not.

    Try letting damp baking soda sit on it for awhile the scrub in a circular motion. works well for me with any stains on laminate countertops

    Take a layer of baking soda over the stain then drizzle hydrogen peroxide over the top to make a wet paste. Let it bubble on the stain for about 5 minutes then add a bit more baking soda to make a thicker paste and scrub with that. It will take a bit of elbow grease but it will work. Make sure you change directions on your scrubbing motion so you don't create swirls in the counter.
