Aloe Vera Stain on Granite Countertop
(Sugar Land, TX)
Hi, A cut leaf of aloe vera was left on a paper plate and the gel seeped through to the granite countertop and left a dark stain very similar to a water stain.
It was left on there approximately 7 hours before I found it. What is recommended for that? Will a simple cleaner suffice? Thank you, Lisa.
If the dark spot has not evaporated and disappeared within a few hours after removing the aloe vera leaf, then the juice has absorbed into and stained the granite countertop.
Granite countertop stains, like stains in all stone or any porous surface cannot be removed with simple cleaners or methods. However
, most granite countertop stains can be easily removed unless very old and/or deep.
You just have to use a specialized method, which depends on the type of substance that created the stain. You'll find complete step-by-step instructions
for cleaning granite countertop stains of all types in the Removing Granite & Marble Stains e-book
You may have to repeat the process a few times (probably not since not much juice could have absorbed in 7 hours), but you shouldn't have much problem removing it.
