How can you reduce the appearance of burn marks on cultured marble?

I left my flattening iron on resulting in burn marks being left on my bathroom counter.

Depending on how deep the burn marks you can sprinkle the burnt area with a light abrasive such as baking soda and a but of water. Then, use a piece of cloth or a nail buffer to buff the surface. It's cheap but does require a bit of elbow grease.

Scrubbing with fine wet or dry sandpaper may remove the marks. If this fails two things come to mind. Fire up that iron and make burn marks in a decorative pattern on the rest of the counter top. If this does not produce a satisfactory appearance ask your Hispanic gardener to spray paint it.

Depending on how deep and big the burn is, you can try using sandpaper to sand off the burn mark. It will reduce it in color, but it still may leave some marks. It may also fade the marble's finish, but after a burn, this may not matter at all.

Cultured marble can be repaired by lightly sanding the burn area with a very fine grit sandpaper. Do not sand too deep, as the coloring is mostly at the surface.
