So there was a stain on the kitchen counter and nothing seemed to work. The light bulb above my head lit up and I reached for the trusty Magic Eraser. After just a few strokes the stain was gone and all was right again in the world, or so I thought. The next day my wife and I noticed some strange streaks on the counter. It turns out that using a Magic Eraser on a laminate counter will make the area dull. No I have not upgraded to solid surface counters yet, but this will increase the priority for doing that. After some research I tried putting olive oil on the counter and rubbing it in with a paper towel. It helped a little bit, and maybe a few more applications will help more, but the bottom line is be very careful when using your trusty Magic Eraser on your laminate counters.
