How do I remove a clay stain from a laminated surface?

by Melissa
Recently, I let a molded clay project dry on my desk at work. It was Crayola kids clay... in purple. It is smooth to the touch so I can't use a razor blade and I am afraid a strong cleanser will damage the tabletop.

Please help!

    Try making a paste with white vinegar and baking soda.Test a small spot first.

    Its the dye from the clay and not the clay itself. Use either Goof Off or WD40. You can also try nail polish remover.

    If it is wood, use a lot of furniture polish and elbow grease. If is like a fake stone, use a stone polish from a tile place. Ask the sales clerk. If it is like a laminate use a very small drop of bleach, very small. Keep rubbing it with no matter what you use. It will not be easy.

    Thanks all. I will start with what I can find around the office before I bring in products. I'll let you know what ends up working. :-)
