Stain on my crackle tile - any thoughts on what to do?
I had a mango in a plastic bag on the countertop and I was waiting for it to ripen. Unfortunately, not only did it ripen but it must have eaten away the plastic bag which was pushed up against my backsplash.
Now I have a dark spot on the tile about the size of a nickel. It's Sonoma Star-Tribeca crackle tile. I always thought the tile was sealed but now I am wondering if it wasn't.
The stain was very bad at first, but I worked on it with a number of cleaners and got it to fade quite a bit. I used oxy-bleach, regular bleach, oxalic acid, citric acid and hydrogen peroxide. I also used some Aquamix Heavy Duty Cleaner and Stain Remover.
I was wondering if any of you have any additional ideas about how to get this spot out totally.
I could ask my tile guy to remove the offending tile and replace it when he comes to do my bathroom but I would rather not go that route.
