Help! How do I get rid of this perfume stain on my glossy counter? I tried soapy water but it just doesnt go
This has been on there for a while and it might not come off at all. Normally if you get the perfume stain on any surface you are to take immediate action to remove it and not allow it to set in as it has now.
The normal recommendation would be ut mix dish soap with water and some white vinegar to rub on the stain and allow it to sit for 30 minutes. Here is a site that has a few solutions to your problem that might help you out some. The solution that works best is the dish soap, vinegar, and water to remove these stains if you do it immediately after the spill. The stain right now has had time to discolor the surface and it might be too late to get it off. web.extension.illinois.edu/
I'm not sure what type of counter top you have, but for fiberglass, the recommended procedure to remove stubborn stains that won't go away with mild detergent, vinegar, or baking soda should be addressed with acetone nail polish remover or paint thinner. Pour a small amount onto a clean cotton cloth and rub the stain until it is fully dissolved. Use a clean damp cloth to rinse the area. When treating stains in this manner, be sure the room is well ventilated and that the acetone or paint thinner does not go down the drain or spill onto other surfaces.

The dressing table has a gloss vanish finish. I noticed some alcohol from a perfume bottle has leaked. I've tried to clean with a paper towel and all purpose cleaner. The spill has removed the vanish finish and the stain and now I can see bare wood in a section.Any tips of how I can fix at home, this furniture is part of a rental property and is not mine. Please help!
I have done the same thing. Twice. Take a drawer out and take the drawer to Lowe's and match the stain and varnish or clear coat. Sand it and apply.
