Gave it a wipe when it happened and thought that was it... but it wasn't.
It was saag aloo and has left a greenish mark on a black sparkly cheapo worktop. I've tried Method and Humblestuff on it because that's what we have in.

We have some lemon juice, and bicarb, and some of that black mould removing Cillit Bang. Would any of those be any good? I have no idea what I'm doing.

I used something called Bar Keepers Friend for this exact problem. It took a few goes but eventually removed it. Think I bought it in Robert dyas. It's a powder.

Bleach? I can use bleach on my melamine table mats to get rid of curry stains and it works beautifully.

Dettox mold and mildew remover seems to remove everything everywhere for me.

Blodynn The bleach it contains will be the active ingredient.

Yep Nickname that's why I use it. Bleaches everything smile

You'll need to bleach the whole worktop in my experience, other wise you'll have a 'cleaner' spot where it was'

I'd try bar keepers friend before hitting the bleach, it's amazing stuff and much more gentle.

Have you tried using whitening toothpaste on it?

Time & sunlight is usual good for curry stains.

Another vote for barkeepers Friend I have a creamy white worktop and Barkeepers friend has cleaned everything off so far.

Try cleaning it with lemon and salt.
