Cleaning is a challenge. You use a lot of bleach to get your bathroom counters clean and white. But you have recently noticed some yellow stains on your normally white bathroom counters. You try to remove the yellow stains with more bleach, but the stain remains. The stain is caused by using bleach to clean your countertop surfaces. To remove the yellow stains, all you need is some hydrogen peroxide and a clean cloth.
Things You'll Need
- Latex gloves
- Small bowl
- Hydrogen peroxide
- Clean cloth or towel
Pour 1 tbsp. of hydrogen peroxide in a small bowl. Wear latex gloves to protect your hands.
Dip a clean cloth or towel into the bowl of hydrogen peroxide.
Wring out any excess liquid from the cloth or towel. The cloth or towel should be damp---not dripping with hydrogen peroxide.
Wipe the yellow stain with the hydrogen peroxide-soaked cloth or towel. Do not rinse the surface or rub the counter.
Let the area air dry.
Repeat steps 2 through 5 to remove other yellow stains from your counters.
Tips & Warnings
- You can also use hydrogen peroxide to remove yellow stains from marble and granite counters as well as other stone counters.
