Removing burns from a hairdryer, straightener, hot pots and pans, and other items that may have left a burn on your laminate countertop can seem like a very daunting, or even near impossible task. Removing burn marks from your countertop is relatively easy, if you have the correct tools and elbow grease for the job. A few household items and a bit of brute strength will help you to get rid of countertop burns.
Things You'll Need
- Soft scrub (with bleach)
- Soft cotton cloth
- White toothpaste
- Old toothbrush
Put a layer of the toothpaste onto the burn mark and let it sit for five to 10 minutes.
Use the toothbrush to scrub the area where the burn is and wipe the area with the cloth and some water. Only proceed to the next step if the burn is not removed
Apply soft scrub to the countertop and use the toothbrush to scrub the area. Use a fair amount of force.
Repeat this step as necessary and wipe the area clean with water and the cloth once the stain has been removed.
Add water to the baking soda until it creates a paste.
Rub the paste that you have just made onto the burn mark. Leave the paste on the mark for about five to 10 minutes.
Use the toothbrush to rub the area free of the stain. Do not apply too much force as the baking soda is an abrasive and could scratch the porcelain.
Wash the area with the soft cloth and water.
