The best thing to do, is sand them down with fine sandpaper and a palm sander, then use the cleaner on them. If you have a howdens joinery close by, call into them and ask if they have the cleaning and polishing kit for the solid surface worktops. I know they discontinued selling the worktops but would possibly have the accessories still in stock.

You need a orbit sander with 120 grit then 220 grit and then 320 grit.

After you have sanded the tops working down to about 320 grit use a scotch pad like a green brillo pad just put your sander on it and buff it up we then put countertop magic on after (you can get this on ebay) For more info on sanding have a look at Minerelle web site.

Hi if its granite then it needs to be re polished at a granite company, if you want the shine to last.
