Question of the Day: Is there a simple yet gentle way of removing a stain from my granite countertops?
A traditional method of getting rid of stains from granite countertops while avoiding heavy cleaners and abrasives is to create a paste using simple and gentle dish soap, water and flour.
First combine the 3 substances in appropriate amounts to post a semi-think paste. Mix the paste well until all the clumps of flour are removed and the paste becomes nice and smooth. Apply this paste generously on the stain and cover with plastic wrap. Make sure the plastic wrap clings smoothly to the granite around the stain. This is to ensure that the stain does not dry out and covers the stain uniformly. Leave the the paste on do stain for 12-16 hours. When you are ready to remove the paste, make sure you use a plastic or wooden utensil. To prevent scratches or other damage, do not use a knife or any kind of abrasive. If done properly, the stain will be gone.
