How to Remove Cake Icing Stains From Tables and Countertops
If you’ve made a lot of cakes and iced them on the table, it could result in some deep-set stains. These stains could discolor the wood or whatever other materials you have on your countertops. Try this home remedy to get the icing stains out of your tables and countertops.
What you will need:
- Vinegar or ammonia
- Damp cloth
- Baking soda and water or toothpaste
- Old toothbrush
- If you notice the stain early, take a damp cloth and scrub the area with some vinegar or ammonia. This will help prevent the stain from setting in too deep in the surface. If the stain does not disappear with this, then move on to the next step; otherwise dry the area and you’re done!
- If the stain is heavier or set in deeply, make a paste out of baking soda and water or use plain white toothpaste if you have it available. Both the baking soda and water mix and the toothpaste are mild abrasives; these will serve the purpose of eliminating the icing stain without damaging your table or countertop too badly. Scrub it gently with the toothbrush and allow it to sit for five to ten minutes.
- Rinse the countertop or table thoroughly with warm water and wash the area with soap before using it again. Allow the area to dry. If the stain still has not disappeared, repeat step two in order to try and fully eliminate the stain.
