So as you know we are renting this house in Florida. A family that was traveling to NY rented their house. I mean this is the house they live in all year long how can they trust someone to stay at their house??? Well they chain locked all their closets but still …
Anyway so the first day I was cooking and used some turmeric. The turmeric spilled and stained the countertop!!! I was in a semi panic while my husband kept saying who cares we will deal with it later.
So you have to understand that later for my husband could mean two things: later as in a “later” time or later as in never.
In this case I had a feeling it meant later as in never so I just tried to fix it with what I had handy.
I tried with some windex, no luck, I tried with some lemon, no luck.
The yellow stain on the white countertop was staring at me. I had to get it out.
I took some coarse salt, spread it on half a lemon and started scrubbing… it was getting lighter but wasn’t coming off.
I kept on scrubbing (I stubborn, or resilient, as my therapist would say) … I let the lemon sit on the stain … scrubbed some more every half hour … and it finally faded enough not to be noticeable.
I was satisfied.
Note to self, if I ever buy a house DO NOT PUT WHITE COUNTERTOPS in the kitchen!!!
