    Hi

    There is a huge yellow stain in our kitchen. I used to have a rug near the kitchen sink. Under the hug this yellow stain has formed which is of the size of the rug. Is there any any/method to erase it completely. We live in an apartment. Worried about the fines too. Please healp.

    Thanks
    Dolly

    You may want to try out a stain remover. Usually this can be purchased at a hardware store like Home Depot or Lowes. You can explain to the associate at the store about the stain and they may be able to give you direction as to which one will work for your particular need.

    Thanks,
    Oopall.

    You can also try pouring some vinegar on it and use a scrubber to get it off.

    Nalini32,

    I tried with vinegar and baking soda but the stain is still there.. no change.

    Oopall,

    Tried with the scrubbing bubbles but the stain is still stubborn... Any specific stainlifter to look for?

    I would try Gonzo (in with laundry detergents that aisle) or Greased Lightning (cleaners aisle). With either one you put on the liquid and let it sit. Greased Lightning takes most stains out of formica. Some stains on linoleum you are not going to get out but give it a try.
