How to remove toothpaste residue from granite?

In one of my bathrooms, there is a residue build up of toothpaste, from not cleaning the 'overspray' after brushing. I've tried many granite cleaning products, but they haven't cleaned it completely. Thank you.

    Have you tried using a razor scraper to get the residue up prior to using your granite cleaning product?

      Yes, I have tried using blade to remove residue but I do it veryb carefully so that it doesn' t scratch the granite.

  • Take a clean cloth, dab some vinegar on the cloth and wipe. Rinse with water and dry immediately. Done!

    I am a soaker. Try wetting a washcloth and letting that sit on the stain overnight. Then use your granite cleaner and see if that helps.

    I would take a old scrub brush, and scrub this area., or a old sos pad. If this fails, put a wet rag on this area, and let it soak, and then begin to scrub this area. All will be fine. J.

    I would spray it down with Mr. Clean or CLR and let it stay on so the minerals and artificial sugars will dissolve. After 15 minutes, spray some more cleaner, and scrub with a scrubber sponge or stiff-bristled brush. Then spray or pour clean water to rinse the granite; then dry it to prevent more spotting. And teach your household to use half the toothpaste, twice the brushing, and to rinse, gargle and spit close to the drain. My husband isn’t bothered by his overspray, but I am, so I’ve had lots of practice. I use Scrubbing Bubbles and Windex on his counter and mirror. 😇
