View Full Version : Kitchen surface Staining
Disaster has struck this afternoon. We live in rented accommodation with a white 2pak kitchen that has a white what looks like laminated benchtop.
For the first time today, I used some Ajax kitchen spray cleaner to clean it, and lo and behold it has stained the whole of one surface a very very pale green colour and I don't seem to be able to get it off. HELP!!!!!!!!
I need some wonderful person:kiss: to come up with a miraculous solution for taking it back to its original colour or I can see us losing our deposit.:detective:
Any ideas would be most welcome. I'm low enough as it is and this has just topped off my day in a very unwelcome way!!!!!
I have heard that vinegar is a good cleaner???? Might be worth a shot if you have some in you pantry :fingerscrossed:
I am willing to give anything a try!!!!!! Cheers hun xxx
Nope, vinegar has not worked.:thumbsdown:
Maybe that nothing will work and we may have to replace the benchtop!!!! Golly, I hope that won't happen!!!!!!:(
Thanks for the suggestion.
Anybody got anymore?:idea:
I'm not sure and I don't want to risk making it worse, but what about trying some bleach on it.
Alternatively as long as you're REALLY careful (as it may be abrasive and that would be worse), some sodium bicarb mixed in with water into a paste or maybe some 'gumption' but I'm almost convinced that gumption is abrasive.
Somebody recommended toothpaste to me once for something similar but once again, I haven't tried it.
Best of luck !:fingerscrossed:

Wow im surprised that stuff stained i use it for everything. Sorry i have no suggestions though, good luck. I am hoping for you but i think if you just clean it a bit each day it will prob go back to its original state. I remeber in our own previous house i used to use miltion and any of that water and milton that overflowed onto the bench left a gastly residue on the bench but with cleaning it eventually went
I wouldn't put anything else on it but I would contact the manufacturer and see if they can suggest something. They usually have a consumer hotline. I would give them a try.
I think I am going to put a mixture of bleach and water in a spray bottle and use that as a cleaner each day to see if it will lift the staining.
I was horrified when I saw what had happened. I did not even leave it on, I wiped it off in less than 20 secs. I am not a happy bunny about this at all, but thank you all for your suggestions.
Keep 'em coming, cos I will try everything.
Thank you!!!!!:wave: :hugs:
