Sometimes on some stones when a fabricator or stone installer uses CA for a chip repair a green stain will appear called a bloom. Sometimes this bloom appears within minutes and other times it can take up to a couple of days. Either way, this product is excellent at removing the stain without using any harsh chemicals. The Bloomer from Tenax is the first stain remover that is designed specifically for removing the green stains from stone caused by Cyano Acrylate.
