Just mix

3/4 cup bleach

one cup water

2 squirts of Liquid dish washing soap

in a spray bottle and your ready to clean almost everything!

You don't even need to rinse it unless your serving food on the cleaned items.

*try using a small amount on the back of the stone and see if it discolors it.*

The maker of my parents' tombstone told me to keep it nice with a pumice stone. I would think that would remove a red stain.

I know Coca-Cola removes many stains (full sugar- not diet) - I don't think it would hurt to try it. They use it on the highways to remove oil spills so it could very well work.

Good luck

Monique :)
