stain in granite counter top

Recently put in new granite counter top. A bottle of salad dressing (Olive Oil & Vinegar) was left sitting on the counter for a few days and now there is a stain where this was sitting. Is there someway to remove this stain?

I'll try an answer this but this Forum may provide more insight than I.

You need to apply a poultice. Take some paper towels and cut them to just larger than the stain. Immerse them in acetone. Cover with plastic wrap and tape the edges. Let sit for 24 hrs. Let air dry for 4-5 hrs. If successful apply an impregnator per manufacturers recommendations. If not successful, do the procedure until it is removed.

My worry is that it has been there for a few days versus a few hours.

Hope this helps!
