There are lots of places that you can read about how to remove scratches in a solid surface countertop. Well, you are right here right now so you can read it here too. The only difference is, the twist at the end.
When you got your solid surface countertop put in you probably got a care kit with them. In this kit you got some sand paper and some scouring pads and maybe a polish or cleaner of some kind. Depending on which brand of countertop you bought you may even have gotten a video that shows you what to do.
Basically the process is this:
Step 1. Sand the scratched area with the lowest grit of paper. Probably 120 grit.
Step 2. Sand the scratched area again with the next highest grit of sandpaper. Probably 220 grit. Be sure to sand a slightly larger area with each sanding process.
Step 3. Sand the scratched area again with the next highest grit of sandpaper. Probably 320 grit. Be sure to sand a slightly larger area with each sanding process.
Step 4. In a motion similar to sanding, go over the sanded area with the scouring pad that you were provided. (probably green or white)
Step 5. Wipe down the affected area with the polish that you were given.
Here's the twist. That is the process. The problem is, your tops are still not going to look the same as they did. I'll bet you never read that part anywhere else before. The scratch will be gone but now you almost certainly have a very busy and confused looking area where the damage was.
That is the process. Try this process first. If you are unhappy with the results then it is time to have it done by a professional. If you have a solid surface cutting board or cutout from a cooktop or sink, then you can try this process on a that and see if you would be happy with the results in your actual kitchen before you launch into a feverish sanding attack on your beautiful countertops.
