I got a stain on my bathroom cabinet that won't come out. It is a laminated wall cabinet. Can I paint over this?

Most any surface can be painted with the proper prep and paint. Before I can recommend the right product, can you answer these questions:

What kind of laminate do you have? White foil, melamine, Formica, wood veneer?

What is it stained with?

I believe there is a paint made for laminate counter tops you could check out. I painted my son's dresser in a similar situation. I sanded well and primed first; still looking good. Like any paint job, I would assume the prep work is the key.
