Are both of these phrases grammatically correct?

I need to get those stains out of the sink.

I need to remove those stains from the sink.


Short and sweet answer: Yes, and both make sense semantically to me.

Slightly longer answer: To me, to get stains out of something implies that the stains might be a bit tougher, and more difficult to remove.
