Q. Hi. I have what appears to be an oily stain (which I think is from candle wax) on sandstone hearth. It's been there several years. Is there any hope of getting it out? I tried acetone and it did nothing. Any help for advice you can provide is much appreciated! Thank you!
A. You will need to apply a poultice using a paint thinner and an absorbent medium. For the absorbent medium, use any of the following:
- Stonecare PRO Signature Professional Stone Poultice Powder
- Clays and fullers earth
- Chalk (whiting)
- Sepiolite (hydrous magnesium silicate)
- Diatomaceous earth
- Methyl cellulose
