How to Remove Oil-Based Hairspray Stain on Marble
Q. Hi. I watched your youtube video and need advice. I spilled sea salt hair spray on my marble counter and it left a stain. I believe that it is an oil stain. What kind of poultice should I create to remove the stain?
A. Natural stone is porous, which means it acts like a sponge. Your marble counter has drawn the oil deep into its pores. You are correct that a poultice will help lift the oil from beneath the surface. Mix a poultice of degreaser and a dry ingredient, such as poultice powder, diatomaceous earth, or flour. Your poultice should have a peanut butter-like consistency. If the stain lightens even a little bit, repeat the same procedure as needed, until it gets lighter and lighter. If the stain does not lighten, call a professional restoration contractor. To find a Certified SurpHaces PRO Partner in your area, contact us.
