    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...

    My darkroom is right next to the washer and dryer, along with the sink I use for rinsing. I have ruined 3 duvet covers and many shirts and socks by dripping fixer on them as I pass by with a print I am anxious to examine in the light. My family is frequently Not Pleased with me. But I could refuse to do the washing altogether, and just stay in the darkroom instead. Now I move all clothing well out of my path.

    (OT: In a film I recently saw, AA went from his darkroom into the kitchen to microwave a print so he could see the drydown. And yes, this is the microwave for food. I felt better about my own furtive forays into the kitchen for the same purpose.)
