Will Acetone Remove the Seal on Granite Countertops?

Q. We have hair line scratches in our Granite vanity counter top that look like it has just scratched the seal and not the stone. Will Acetone remove the sealer so we can verify, fix and reseal the area? Also what Acetone would be recommended for Granite?

A. You can purchase acetone in the paint department at Home Depot or Lowes. One bottle of acetone will be the same as another bottle, regardless of which acetone you select. It should not hurt the granite, however, depending on the type of sealer on the granite, acetone may not be effective. If this is the case, you could try using alcohol. Granite scratch removal and sealing are very specialized services, and we highly recommend you contact a PRO in your area if you feel like you‘re in over your head. Good luck!
