Counters are great items to have around the home and office for use as work spaces. Since they were created to use for working, there seems to be an almost uncanny ability for these countertops to collect stains. Some of the most difficult stains to remove are the various kinds of dye stains that crop up from time to time. In the bathroom, it can often be hair dye. In the kitchen it can often be clothing dye or food dye...well, you get the idea.
Here are some wonderful items that you can use to help remove the dye stains. Even better, each of these items can be found in most homes. What this means is that you are going to be able to remove dye stains without spending a whole lot of money.
Whenever you remove any stains, but particularly a dye stain, do not use something that is going to leave scratches or damage the countertops in some way. As such, do not use a scrubby, steel wool, or anything that is a harsh abrasive. Harsh abrasives will leave scratches, even if they are minute, that will create an area of your counter more likely to attract stains in the future.
