Remove Grease Stain From Granite Countertop With Acetone Poultice

If you have ever had a granite counter you know what I mean when I say they can stain easily, because they are porous.

When you get a grease stain on the counter, and it doesn't seem to be coming off, the video below has some tips for how to get it out.

Specifically, the video suggests using an acetone poultice to remove the grease stains from the granite.

The ingredients you will need to follow these directions include:
To make the acetone poultice wet some paper towels with the acetone, and place the wet paper towels over the stain.

To keep the area moist overnight cover the paper towels with plastic wrap, and tape it down making sure the acetone soaked towels are in contact with the stained area.

Then, after leaving overnight take off the plastic wrap but leave the wet paper towels on the counter.

Once the paper towel has dried you can remove the paper towel from the granite counter and the stain should be gone.

If not, you can repeat the procedure again.

Here is the video for full details:

Make sure to reseal afterward
