How to Remove Wood Stain From Bathroom Porcelain

Porcelain is a strong and durable material that, because it is non-porous, resists stains well. Wood stain, however, contains resins and pigment that will stain porcelain. If you are able to catch the stain quickly, you'll be able to remove it completely and quickly. If not, you may have to spend more time and use a more aggressive method to remove it.

Sinks, tubs and toilets are often made with porcelain.

Step 1

Soak a clean cloth in turpentine.

Step 2

Rub the turpentine over the wood stain until the mark is gone. If the mark is stubborn, hold the soaked cloth over the wood stain until it softens.

Step 3

Scrub the stain if you can still see it. Use a stiff, nylon-bristled brush.

Step 4

Mix ¼ cup trisodium phosphate with 1 quart water.

Step 5

Dip a cloth into the solution and rub it over the area to neutralize the turpentine.

Step 6

Dry the porcelain completely with a clean cloth.
