I have a granite top on our bar with several "ring stains." Can I use a marble polishing compound for polishing them out?

Q. I have a granite top on our bar with several "ring stains." Can I use a marble polishing product for polishing them out?

A. A marble polishing powder or compound can sometimes be used and shouldn’t do any harm. However, you may need to use a granite polishing compound. You can find these products at 
Stone Care Central.

If that doesn’t work you will need a professional restoration company to refinish the top. What you are describing sounds like mineral deposits, but it could be caused from other things as well. If the polish does not resolve the problem, I recommend that you call in a professional to identify the real problem and the solution.
