    • I tried alcohol, and Krud Kutter without much success. I am NOT a happymomma today. I have ranted (and wanted to curse!) My 11yo son just broke an ink pen in half for the fun of it... and it dribbled (alot) all over the floor.

    • My mom swears by peroxide.  Blot the stain don’t rub. Or seltzer. Oh and lots of patience.

    • Majic Erasers also remove the finish (ask me how I know? :)

      Actually, while I was on the computer surfing for answers my son decided to take matters into his own hands. He used the glass stovetop cleaner. I was afraid it would strip the finish, but thankfully it didn’t. I was none to happy for his experimenting either, but glad that it worked.
      I was reminded of the time I spilled fingernail polish on my mom’s sewing machine. It was an antique. I was scared she would be mad so I used fingernail polish remover to get it off. Yikes! So I guess this was my payback. LOL Only difference was, I got a spanking and he didn’t. Of course as mad as I was (we are showing the house tomorrow to a very good prospect) it would not have been wise for me to pick up the rod of correction!

    • Don’t keep me in suspense.  Did the stain come out totally?  No remnants to be seen right?
