I have a candle catch on fire on this bathroom counter. I don't know what the material is - can you tell? I'm trying to learn more about my house - especially how to clean it!

Does anyone know how to remedy this burnt in mark on the counter?

The burn would not be near as deep as the scratch in that video. Start with a scotchbrite pad and perhaps a little Bar Keeper's Friend or Softscrub.

Thank you for taking the time to respond. I really appreciate and I'll be trying these things in the next few days!

You can also try 3m brand rubbing compound. It's made for auto paint but works well on a lot of surfaces.
