How to Remove Dairy Cream Stains From Countertops
Some of the more porous countertops and light-colored countertops (alabaster, marble) can easily stain if you spill dairy cream on them. Thankfully, the process of removing dairy cream stains from these materials is fairly simple.
What you will need:
- Rubbing alcohol
- White blotter
- Poultice: Bleach, water, powdered detergent (even parts)
- If the spill is fresh, take a towel and wipe up any of the excess. Fresh spills can still start to stain quite quickly, depending on what the dairy cream spill is on, so make sure that you don’t just wipe the spill and forget about it.
- Mix three or four drops of ammonia with one full cup of rubbing alcohol. Mix it gently. Make sure to wear rubber gloves when you do this, as this solution could irritate the skin.
- Soak the white blotter in the solution and place it over the area to start absorbing the stain. Put a heavy object on top of the blotter in order to help with the process of drawing out the oils. You can continue to put the above solution on the cloth in order to keep “bleaching” the cream stain out of the material.
- This should, ultimately, eliminate the stain before it really gets into your countertop. If that is not the case, then make some of the poultice as listed above. Please keep the rubber gloves on through this process to prevent injury and irritation.
- Take the poultice and soak a fresh blotter into it. Place the blotter onto the stain, putting the heavy object back on top of it. Allow the poultice to sit overnight, and the stain should be completely gone when you return to the countertop the next day.
