I have a pimple on my chin, I put some iodine on it last night because that usually helps heal them up.

Managed to drip some iodine in the sink (the clear detinctured stuff).

This morning there's a big red ring around the drain, the sink itself is discolored, the brushed nickle sink stopper looks rusted. Never seen this before?

What neutralizes iodine? Comet won't touch it. Scrubbing won't touch it. Isopropyl alcohol won't touch it. Hydrogen peroxide won't touch it.

I'm trying CLR right now. If that doesn't work I'm in trouble.

A little - very little - ammonia in warm water, with a bit of laundry detergent.

Hey, thanks for that. I let it soak overnight in a little dilute ammonia and this morning the stain is all gone!

Nothing else touched it -- although borax powder helped a little.

Thank my late mother for it. That's what she told me when I had a bottle of iodine break in the garage sink. It was all over the place, and it cleaned right up with that mixture.
