Q: Looks like my installer got plumbers putty on my brand new unsealed natural stone sink, leaving spots or smudges. Any way to remove therm?
A: They can be removed with a technique called poulticing. You will need to use a strong solvent such as methylene chloride to remove. You can find this chemical at most home centers. See our care guide for instructions on applying a poultice. You need to be very careful with these chemicals. I strongly urge you to consider hiring a pro to perform this type of work.
