Bleaching a Formica counter top for me has been awful. I thought it was a stain from someone setting something on it, so I soaked the spot with bleach and it got worse. Now I have the same stain only bigger. It's frustrating. If anyone knows what to do please let us know.
If bleach has taken the color out, it is not a stain, but the total loss of color. You can't remove this mark. I think you will have to either live with it, or cover it with a cutting board.
I have a Formica countertop in my bathroom. It is only about 3 years old. I have places on my countertop that look "bleached out" from bottles of cleaner I have used and evidently they leaked a little bit. What can I do? I really don't want to keep it like this.
My almond formica has a lighter ring mark where I set down a gallon of bleach while doing some other cleaning. How do I fix this color difference and make the ring disapear?
I have white Clorox stains on my dark Formica counter top. Please help.

There are new products out now. Home Depot carries a product that allows you to re-color your counter tops. It's approx. 20.00 I don't know the square footage it covers. Otherwise, buy a potted plant because it's ruined.
I want to know if Super Iron Out is a safe product to take off bleach stains in my colored Formica (salmon color) countertop. I used the other products like ( lemon, baking soda, Oxiclean, silver cleaner, etc.) nothing takes off the bleach stains. Also I need the instructions to apply the Super Iron Out. Any other ideas will be very appreciated. Thanks a lot.
I recently made the big mistake of using bleach to clean stains from my formica kitchen counter. I left it on a long time while going off to do other things. So now there are yellow stains from the bleach. Short of replacing (or painting) it all, any suggestions out there for me? Thanks in advance!
I left a cleaner with bleach in it on top of my Formica countertop. Now there is a bleached out ring. Is there anything I can try before replacing the entire top?

Make sure the Melamine paint is in the same finish as your counter top ie: matte, semi-gloss, high gloss
Make sure you use a very small foam roller > a brush will leave stroke marks and look like an eyesore

I hate Formica Countertops--they stain so easily!

I have sort of a problem here. I had a lovely blue candle sitting on my Formica counter top and after I picked it up I noticed a nice blue ring (from the wax's dye) sitting on the counter. I've tried a few products on it- don't worry, I know that bleach and Formica don't get along so I'm not doing that one- but does anyone have any ideas as to what I can do to get rid of the stains? I have to get rid of them or I don't get my apartment deposit back! (03/11/2007)
