Removing scratches from countertops

Anyone know what's appropriate to use? Our 2013 Eagle fifth wheel has the fake granite counter and it seems just using it causes minor scratching. I didn't notice but DW di and wanted me to ask. Hiding her glasses isn't an option, she has contacts.

I suppose using lower wattage bulbs is out, too!

By "fake granite", I'm assuming you mean Corian (or similar) solid surface. If that's the case, Corian is acrylic, which is a fairly soft plastic, and it doesn't take much to scratch it. But, it also doesn't take much to repair the scratches. You can sand the scratches out with an ultra-fine emery cloth or sanding sponge: 120 grit or finer. Sand the entire area with a circular motion until the scratches are gone - do not use a belt sander or random orbital sander! After you've sanded the area, repeat the sanding with a green Scotchbrite scrubber pad, then repeat with a white or pink Scotchbrite pad to polish the surface. That's what Corian fabricators do. It will make the top look brand new!

Do not do this on a laminate (Formica) countertop! Their color layer is only a thin sheet of paper, and you will sand right through it in no time.
