It appears that I managed to put a bleach stain on SWMBO's new counter top while brewing over the weekend.

Since I don't want to die in my sleep, I have to figure out how to fix it.

Any advice?

Ouch! It was nice knowing ya bro.....

I honestly can't think of a thing to get a bleach stain up. In fact I am thinking it literally bleached the color of the formica. So with that being said there is no turning back.

Now just for shiggles I would grab a Magic Eraser..... They seem to work miracles for me in the past.

Good luck & sleep with one eye open....lol

Man, I did the same thing. I was in trouble for a week. I continue to get in trouble every time she sees it and is in a bad mood. I may have to go granite too.

Looking on the net, this seems to be a common problem. Due to the EPA, formica is crap now.

This is a "granite design" counter top. I wonder if I can dye or stain the spot, to make it blend in?

I have also seen mention of using WD-40 to resurface the formica.

One way or another, I get the feeling all my brewing will be moving outside now.

My bet is your SWMBO is getting a new counter top for xmas? I'm betting it bleached the color out so resurfacing wont change the color much if at all.
