My kids are constantly spilling juice on my kitchen counter top. Is there an easy way to remove the stains?

A Pantry Problem Solver

Sometimes the solutions to your problems are as close as your pantry shelf. For counter-top stains caused by coffee, tea, or juice spills, for instance, just grab that box of baking soda you usually reserve for your favorite cookie recipes. Then mix three parts baking soda with one part water to create a paste. Apply onto a damp sponge, making sure to scrub the stain vigorously. Allow to sit for 30 minutes and wipe clean.

Baking soda is certainly very useful. I wish it could be more effective in removing stubborn stains from turmeric powder on my countertop.

Try using a separate utensil scrubber on the stain. Scrubbing once or twice with the soda should remove the stains. Repeated scrubbing isn't required
