The Corian countertop has a nonporous surface, which keeps liquid from penetrating the surface and leaving behind permanent stains. With its solid surface, removing several layers to fix scratches does not change or alter the appearance of the Corian countertop. The solid surface allows the homeowner to gently buff away scratches, yet the colour and pattern remain the same. With light exfoliation, you can remove blemishes without damaging the integrity of the countertop.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Pour 1 tsp of a mild abrasive cleaner onto a damp cloth. Rub the cloth over the scratches on the Corian countertop using small rotating motions. Start at the end of one scratch working towards the other end. Repeat the process over all the scratches to remove dirt and soap film.

  2. 2

    Wet a cloth and rinse the area clean. Wipe all soap residue from the countertop. Allow the countertop to remain wet.

  3. 3

    Rub each scratch gently with a scrubbing pad, rubbing in one direction only. Apply light pressure to the pad and examine the scratch after two to three wipes. Repeat the process on all scratch marks, removing the imperfections on the countertop.

  4. 4

    Wipe the countertop with a damp cloth and dry with a soft cloth after removing all scratches.
