Cleaning Concrete Countertop Material

Hi everyone and thanks in advance for tips. I am cleaning the desks in my church school. Some are painted wood and they are coming clean OK, but there are some that are like a poured concrete. That is what they look like anyway. They also look a bit like countertop material.

Anyway I was trying to clean them today. They started to come clean when I sprayed bleach water on them but you could see it was sprayed. Then i got a sponge with the green scrubby thing on the other side. For 15 minutes I scrubbed that desk top. Oh yes, it came clean but it still is dirty plus I have 12 desks in that room to clean. I have not tried vinegar yet. That is the only thing I can think of that my nose could tolerate. Someone has suggested a Gorrllla or gooey something but she said it smells, oooohhhh really smelly. Don't want that. Any suggestions, please help!

Try Barbasol Shaving cream. You can buy it at the dollar store, and it works great.

Try on a small area these:

Some thoughts, alcohol, peroxide, baking soda and water, dawn dish detergent, or Tide.

Then don't mix these====vinegar or bleach or ammonia ---BUT NOT AT THE SAME TIME!!!!!!!! USE ONLY INDIVIDUALLY, CAN CAUSE TOXIC FUMES IF MIXED.
