For semi gloss surfaces use a soft scrub that is diluted with bleach. Using a white Scotch Brite pad, rub in a circular motion to get rid of the stain as quickly as possible. In the case of high gloss surfaces, use a sponge instead of a white Scotch Brite pad. If you find that the stained area is dull when compared to its surrounding area use a white polishing compound and a sponge to restore the gloss.
You can disinfect Staron bench tops by occasionally using diluted household bleach. Scratches and cuts can be removed using sandpaper. Staron is heat resistant when compared to other bench tops but it is always better to use a hot pad when placing hot pans and frying pans on any bench top.
