Stone Essentials™ Countertop Polish is an easy-to-use aerosol foam polish that provides a beautiful shine on all stone countertops and vertical surfaces. Countertop Polish increases water repellency, minimizes water spotting, and eliminates heavy residues and fingerprints. It is a weekly or monthly polisher for non-floor stone surfaces such as polished marble, granite, limestone and travertine.

The products and supplies in this kit are designed to eliminate etch marks from most marble, limestone, travertine and terrazzo. Etch marks are acid burns created by acids such as lemon, vinegar, citric juices, acid base cleaners, etc. Etch marks remove the shine from polished stone surface. The Etch Kit allows you to re-polish smaller etch marks such as glass rings or small spots.
Please note that the contents of this kit are designed to work on small areas.
Some etch marks may be too old or too deep to be removed using the Etch Removing Kit. Should these etches not come out, International Stoneworks can remove them with our professional polishing system.
These products can be found at our location, as well as various Houston retail locations: Bering’s Hardware, Buffalo Hardware, and Ace Hardware (at Memorial and Dairy Ashford).
