Last night I made a couple hundred drop flowers, laid them out on wax paper, and left them to dry overnight. Now there are pink swirls all over my white laminate counter tops! I used my all-purpose cleaner (Method) and a baking soda/vinegar paste but there is still residue. How do I get this up and how do I keep it from happening again?
slide the wax papers onto a big baking sheet or onto your cooling racks, so they are not right on yoru countertop. Parchment paper is a little more "sturdy" than wax paper.
Clorox cleanup or diluted bleach should take care of your counters. Put the wax paper on cardboard or use several layers.
Keep cleaning... my daughter thought it would be fun to squirt red food coloring all over while I was in the bathroom....
I use Fantastik cleaner, I would let it soak for a few minutes, then wipe. After several repeats of those steps it eventually all came up.
Use the Clorox gel cleaner...it even gets red or black up that accidently squirts on my counter.
Have you tried cleaner with bleach, like Soft Scrub or a spray cleaner? I've used a spray cleaner with bleach and let it sit for a couple minutes and that works well.
Hope that helps a little.
Have you ever used a "Magic Eraser"? They are wonderful and get things off like you wouldn't imagine.
Mr. Clean Magic Eraser - my daughter swears by them. She has a 4 year old and a 2 year old. Give it a try.
if you use the magic erasers, make sure to clean the counters after using it.
My cabinets have a real light blue color to them, so anything with bleach takes the color out. I use the Lysol Kitchen Antibactiaral, its in a purple bottle, it works great! Good Luck!
Another vote for magic eraser! I use it whenever food color gets onto my counters.
I'm convinced that Mr. Clean Magic Erasers really have magic in them! They get the scum off the shower doors, and food coloring off the countertops!
I heart magic erasers
Yes to the magic eraser, they have saved me from some tough stains
If Mr.Clean was a real person I would marry him lol
Another vote for the magic erasers
I heart magic erasers too!!
If not use some bleach.. I try to steer clear of harsh cleaners (method cleaners are nice and natural) but sometimes.. you gotta break out 'da big guns.
If you make a paste of Oxyclean it'll get 20 year old grease or paint out of anything LOL ... I'd try it !
I heart oreo filling and the bald clean man LOL!!!
i had the same thing happen to me. it took a couple of days of scouring and wiping before it all came up.
You could always check out this site. Apparently, Coke can even remove permanent marker
OK. Now I'm going to get some Magic Erasers. I've seen them but never tried them. Ya'll have convinced me.
Add another vote for the magic erasers, and thanks to everyone for the tip, it never even occurred to me to use them on my countertops. They get scuff stains off walls like you would NOT believe. Now if only they worked on stretch marks and old tattoos. J/K!
I use softsrub w/ bleach and works great!
