olive oil stain on unsealed natural stone
I just got a new natural stone backsplash and got olive oil splatter stains while cooking. Any ideas on how to get them out before sealing?
Try treating the backsplash with a degreaser. You can find degreasers at Lowes or Home Depot.
Because the splatter marks are on a vertical surface this could be a little more difficult. Keep the surface wet with degreaser for as long as you can before rinsing.
If this doesn't work, try wetting some paper towels with the degreaser and sticking them to the vertical surface and leaving for several hours.
After a day or so, remove the wet towels and let the stone dry to see the progress. If the splatter marks are still there, try this process again.
Remember to rinse and allow a few hours to dry between applications to see your progress.
Keep doing this application until you're satisfied. It may take a week or two of doing this, so have some patience, it will eventually pull the oil out.
I hope this helps.
