Swanstone, a solid surface used in countertops, sinks and tubs, can withstand heat up to 450 degrees, according to the Swan Corporation. Although durable, the Swanstone surface can fall victim to scratch marks that mar the finish. Left in disrepair, the scratch may widen as grime collects within the blemish. Fortunately, Swanstone has a renewable surface, allowing complete removal of blemishes.

Step 1

Wipe dust from the scratch with a clean cloth. Stick a finger into the cloth and dig deep within the blemish to remove any dirt.

Step 2

Rub a 220-grit to 400-grit sandpaper over the scratches. Position the sandpaper at one end of the scratch, and lightly glide it up and down over the blemish. After three to four rubs with the sandpaper, inspect the scratch.

Step 3

Brush residue from the scratch with the rag. If the scratch remains, continue rubbing with the sandpaper and inspecting after two to three swipes, until the scratch disappears.

Step 4

Rub a scouring pad over the area, after removing the scratch, to smooth out the Swanstone surface. Use medium pressure as you rub with the scouring pad.

Step 5

Spray the area with an all-purpose cleaner. Wipe the area with a damp sponge and dry it with a clean cloth.
