    try a baking soda and liquid soap paste. Apply it, let it sit, then use a damp scrub sponge. If the stain still remains try a wet magic eraser. Don’t scrub hard with the eraser just rub it on the stain. Next throw away the Lysol cleaner and go green. It’s a safer choice for you, your family, the earth and your belongings.

      Patti I tried your idea with the baking soda and hand soap, but I used a toothbrush and scrubbed it for a few minutes (not real hard but a little pressure and going in circles then in different directions) and now there is NO TRACE of the blue stain on my sink anywhere . So thank you so much.! ☺️

    I would contact the manufacturer of the Lysol bowl cleaner; they may have a better idea of how to obtain a result.

    Pour some hydrogen peroxide in a small bowl. Wear latex gloves to protect your hands. Dip a clean cloth or towel into the bowl of hydrogen peroxide. Wring out any excess liquid from the cloth or towel. The cloth or towel should be damp---not dripping with hydrogen peroxide. Wipe the blue stain with the hydrogen peroxide-soaked cloth or towel.

    You can also try a paste of hydrogen peroxide and baking soda . Cover the stain and let it dry. Then just wipe off.

    It;s also possible the Lysol ate through the finish.

    Try wetting with a sponge and then laying tissue ontop to try to draw it out, If not a Bicarb to the water to make PASTE. LEAVE IT TO SEE IF THAT WILL DRAW IIT OUT!
