This might not belong in this forum but Im willing to take a shot! When I was cleaning in my laundry area, I noticed that some fabric softener had somehow dribbled onto the top of my dryer, I immediately wiped it off but it left behind some faint blue stains where the drops had landed....ACKK!! Is there any way to get it off or have I messed up the top of the dryer!! Any tips or tricks are gladly appreciated!

Try a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, these are pretty gentle and they will clean just about every kind of stain.

I'd try a typical "cleaner" style automotive past wax

You could try a drop of chlorine bleach and two drops of water in a small area. That should remove the stain. Then wipe that with a wet cloth and use vinegar to neutralize the alkaline bleach solution and more water to rinse. If the dryer top is painted rather than porcelain, a good application of auto wax will help protect it.
