Hi again, Tony and thanks for your patience.

You can use ascorbic acid powder (Vitamin C powder found in any pharmacy or natural foods store) mixed with water, to get the iodine stain out of a formica countertop. Buy the smallest amount of ascorbic acid powder, as you won't need much.

Mix the ascorbic acid with water, to make a paste and rub that onto the iodine stain. Let it sit for about a half an hour. Then wipe with a wet paper towel to remove the ascorbic acid and the stain should be gone. Don't use a Magic Eraser or anything abrasive, as it will scratch the formica surface.

If you're not sure the surface of the countertop is formica and it's some sort of stone, do nothing and call in a professional to clean it.

I hope this helps!

Your satisfaction is my ultimate goal and I welcome any follow-up questions you may have on this subject, at no additional charge.

At the conclusion of our correspondence, your 5-star rating will be most appreciated, as this will enable me to continue to send quality answers to additional clients and receive recognition from the website for my assistance.

Best wishes,

Cher
