They are pretty stained in some spots and was wondering, is straight Clorox gonna do the trick or is there a special solution out there that works even better for tougher, grease/oil stains?

Thanks........!

Found this on a website: * Baking Soda. Removes stains from white formica countertops


Don;t use bleach. I found this also on Thriftyfun.com ...

Bleach Stains on Formica
I recently made the big mistake of using bleach to clean stains from my formica kitchen counter. I left it on a long time while going off to do other things. So now there are yellow stains from the bleach. Short of replacing (or painting) it all, any suggestions out there for me? Thanks in advance!

Glad to see the lemon juice trick. Will give that a try myself. Did the same thing with bleach trying to clean up coffee stains off the counter.

I have had all kinds of stains on my "almost white" kitchen counter tops! After using a juicer w/ cranberries, I had a red stain about a foot in diameter. Ah! Get out the bleach, right? Wrong. What was a soft red stain immediately turned BRIGHT ORANGE with the bleach! I thought I had ruined the counter. My Bar Keeper's Helper, soft scrub - Nothing fazed it. I thought of lemon juice. (Don't know why.) The lemon juice (reconstituted) almost immediately faded the stain. I use the lemon juice (the cheap, big bottle) for the Formica cabinet tops exclusively now.

I`ve done the same thing. Soft scrub worked for me.

Hi Tonya,

No advice for you, but it might help the readers to know what color your counter is everywhere else and if the bleach also lightened your counter... :) Good luck!
