Countertop Stained With Whitening Toothpaste

My children stained my dark gray formica countertop with toothpaste (whitening toothpaste). Is there a way to restore the color or draw out the "bleached" stain?

For starters, thanks for the lesson. I won't make this mistake in my future now! Who knew!?

If I were faced with this, I'd try to find a permanent marker of the same or similar color and try to "stain" it back to the original color. Hairdye might also work. You may have to do "touch-ups" every so often, but it's better than having "loud" white marks all over!!

Good luck!

THANKYOU KINDLY FOR THIS QUESTION AND ADVICE. I DID THE SAME THING...UGGGGH MY COUNTERTOP LOOKS BRAND NEW EXCEPT THIS DISCOLORED AREA WHERE I LEFT MY WHITENING TOOTHPASTE OPEN IN A RUSH. JUST DEVASTATED I DID THIS...HOPE A MARKER HELPS....AS I HAD THOUGHT ABOUT THAT. I WAS COVERING WITH HAND TOWEL BUT THIS ALSO WILL BE GREAT. THANKYOU SO KINDLY.
