The dye contained in Kool-Aid powdered drink mixes makes this beverage a potent stain-maker on household surfaces. Although kids often enjoy the bright colors, you may cringe if they accidentally make spills as they drink. Get a Kool-Aid stain off your counter with quick action to minimize stains and prevent them from soaking into the counter surface permanently.
Soak up the Kool-Aid spill as quickly as possible with paper towels to minimize stains on the counter.
Remove as much of the stain as possible with a damp paper towel. Because a sealant layer protects some countertop surfaces, stains may not penetrate into the surface of the counter. Therefore, you may find you can remove even stubborn stains with plain water.
Make a paste with baking soda and water to lift the stain from the counter surface gently. Cover the stained area completely with the paste.
Moisten the sponge and scrub the stained area gently. Continue rubbing the paste until you remove the Kool-Aid stain.
Rinse away the baking soda paste from the counter and dry the area.
