This works for any kind of stain in the kitchen too. Ever get blueberry stains on your counter top? Don't ruin it with cleansers. Use a little bleach water and it dissappears.
I have been using this method for cleaning my shower and kitchen counter tops for years. It also is great in a pinch for small surface cleaning like getting wine or tomato sauce stains out of a white tablecloth.
In a plastic spray bottle mix 1/3 bleach with 2/3's water. Spray shower walls immediately after showering. It cuts down cleaning time in the bathroom once a week.
For white table linens, spray soiled area and wait for stain to fade as it fades blot with a white towel wash as usual. May need to reapply a few times until stain completely lifts. Also works well on stained countertops.

Editor's Note: Only use on white materials to avoid bleach stains. Test in an inconspicuous place first.
To disinfect your counters and other surfaces, you can use bleach but you don't need alot of it. Simply a capful or two max to a large spray bottle filled with water will do the job w/o damage to counters.
For antibacterial/disinfectant properties that are more natural, you can use white vinegar (1/4 cup) or lavender oil (just a few drops - 6) for a large spray bottle filled with water.
Works great. (02/26/2011)
