I am on phase three of a major masterbath remodel (Phase 1 tear out
old tile tub surround, termite damaged wood and rebuild and retile;
Phase 2 tear out carpet and tile floor in w.c. and retile) Phase three
involves refinishing vanity cabinet work, hardware replacement and
The current counter is a type of solid synthetic material, not a
laminate over wood, which is black in color with faux white marble
appearance. It is a nice top but has had a bit of wear and has a lot
of small scratches. Is there any material, i was thinking some type
of rubbing compound combined with a buffer, that would polish this
surface. I dont' want to paint, I don't think it would take as the
suface is pretty hi gloss to begin with but will replace if there is
not a suitable alternative to renew this finish.
It would be nice to know who made it and what they recommend. I suggest
the problem may be finding the right compound that will give you the same
finish you have/want. Otherwise you will end up polishing out the whole
thing to make it even.
Any polishing/rubbing compound...rouge, tripoli...auto paint polishing stuff. Just buff it *SLOOOW*

After reading the responses from others I checked out the instructions
that came with mine (Swanstone brand). It gave these instructions:
Stains Abrasive cleaners like Bon Ami
Abrasive bad like Scotch-Brite (no steel wool or metal scouring pads)
Bleach (special instructions provided)
Don not use cleaners designed to remove iron or rust
Marks - WHITE automotive rubbing compound
Scratches Sand paper starting with course going to finest grit until
scratch disappears. Blend area in with abrasive finishing pad
I strongly suggest you check the instructions that came with your
product or check with the manufacturer.
