Well I can't guarantee it'd work but I have gotten off lots of stains, scuffs and spots with my Mr Clean Magic Eraser! Try in a inconspicuous place first to be sure it doesn't mar the finish. Good luck!

The "gel all purpose cleaner containing bleach", we use the generic. If allowed to sit on a stain will often remove it or might take just a little rubbing. That's really the only purpose I buy this particular cleaner for. It is sold in the cleaning aisle in a bottle, near the all purpose cleaners/cleansers ...but it's not soft scrub cleanser, although that might work also if it contains bleach. You might also try Clorox Clean Up Liquid & spray it on & let it sit a while. Sometimes baking soda does the trick, moisten & rub lightly, low grade abrasive like the toothpaste. Good Luck!

Rubbing alcohol will remove ink stains from countertops, so it may work for removing makeup. I would recommend trying it first, since in removing ink stains it works better first if you haven't tried anything else first. I use a saturated cotton ball with a little elbow grease. Good luck!

Thanks for the tip with rubbing alcohol. It got the nail polish removed with elbow grease, however there was a stain that I can't identify by my daughter, and it won't come out!

I WOULD TRY OXYCLEAN (I SHOULD HAVE STOCK IN THAT COMPANY!!!) OR BAM SUPER POWER CLEANER. I JUST REMOVED SOME STAINS FROM MY WHITE COUNTER WITH THE BAM.

If the countertops are formica, you might try a Mr. Clean magic eraser. I've had good luck using one on my off-white countertips.

I had makeup and ink stains on my counter top, and the magic eraser worked perfectly! Thank you so much!
