    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?

    It might be Corian
    And it might be fixable, but I said might.

    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.

    I've heard some folks have success just by using toothpaste as a poultice.

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