    Polished Corian counter tops

    Polishing Corian Counter Tops


    So the other day I was in the kitchen getting a snack and I noticed how neglected our 4 year old Corian counter tops were becomming. Well... Meguiar's to the rescue.




    I started out with fine cut cleaner on a cutting pad, which cut down some of the slight scratches and a few rough areas. The DACP did the most, it made it glossy again. I followed it up with a coat of #26 using my PC just for added shine. Now the counter tops look brand new again!

    They look real good, it will be interesting to see how it holds up. You know I was thinking about using some NXT on my bathroom counter top its not Corian but it use to shine like what you have pictured Looks like I might give it a try seeing you had good results! It seems there is always another use for meguiars products.

    There needs to be some type of Award for things like this...

    Then perhaps some therapy

    Haha Mike. I was actually planning on doing an "Extreme Counter top Makeover" post but the pictures really didn't come out right for it.

    Still, they say you can even sand and buff corian too, I might try that next time.

    Looks great!!

    Now that the kitchen is done, time to move onto the fiberglass shower surround!! The rotary with #83 DACP works really well there as well!!

    I'm known as the man that washes his car all the time!

    I guess they think we're supposed to drive dirty cars?

    My wife has been complaining about our 10 year old corian for years. Too dull she says. I want granite she says. Rick, not only can I now justify buying a PC, but you may have saved me THOUSANDS! (OK Mike, where's that PC special?)
