    Dear hoffy,

    Something that has always worked for me (but unfortunately not for another fellow recently) is to cover the stain with a paper towel soaked in undiluted household bleach and walk away.

    Good luck,

    What's the material? Plastic or painted metal?

    If it is painted metal and it is smooth, you can use rubbing compound to rub the stain out. Just don't use very aggressive one or use way too much force. It can rub the entire layer of paint out.
    Develop, stop, fix.... wait.... where's my film?

    I guess I would just sheepishly ask for forgiveness and then suggest that no guests be allowed in the laundry area.
    WYSIWYG - At least that's my goal.

    Or... you could just promise to do all the laundry for a year.

    Well - if I had to crack a joke about it - a nice wire brush attached to a power drill at about 2500 rpm should be enough to remove that stain!!!


    I brake for fixer!

    I'm afraid that I don't have very helpful suggestions, but it is worth pointing out that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Try an old towel underneath your trays. To get the stains out, try vinegar in addition to the above suggestions. Otherwise, paint over the stains before your wife sees. The stains will magically disappear.
    If you are considering switching to digital, ask yourself this: What would Ansel do?

    Repaint the top of the washer. Or turn the washer on the side so you don't notice the stain...

    I would have been cheaper to grovel.
