I am looking for ideas for removing scratches from my laminated gloss
worktop. Small scratches seem to show up worse on the gloss variety.
One idea I have is to gently heat the laminate so it just starts to become
soft. Then with some vigorous rubbing the scratch might vanish. This is very
theoretical! Obviously questions are; what to use to heat the laminate and
to what temperature?
All suggestions gratefully received!
Is it wrong to kill a child?
Is it wrong for someone to do it on your behalf?
IMO there is a high probability that you will wish you hadn't
done that! Sounds like a recipe for a ruined worktop.
You could try that clear miracle car paint scratch filler I keep
seeing promoted, e.g. in Homebase. Don't know how well it works.
Test it on an unobtrusive place first in case it eats laminate.
...bearing in mind that T-Cut is an abrasive that removes the
outer surface of the thing you are polishing.
How much removal will laminate stand before looking damaged?
I don't know so it's a bit risky unless they are very light
scratches, which is why I suggested a filler.
Be interested to know how it turns out.

Not very much :-(

As a one off job you might get away with using one of those cheap
polishing attachments you fit to a drill, otherwise you need a mop
head like this:
and some "Smooth Grade" compound, you can attach the mop to a 9"
grinder, but IMO they are a bit too fast.
