Red dye from a floral arrangement stained granite a cemetery headstone. Does anyone know how to remove it?

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

My sister just uses hot water, dish soap and a brush. Scrub! Rinse, or let it rain off.
