Unfortunately they arent gone. The wax seems to have faded them a bit and they are a bit less noticeable but they are still there.

Since corian is a solid surface you could probably buff them out.

See How to Clean Corian. It says "avoid window cleaners" but you can use bleach. You probably left a clean mark. Use more diluted bleach to get it all clean. Unfortunately you'll have to get through the wax coating now. I wouldn't put a non food-safe coating on a countertop.

Dang! By the time you get them out, you'll have the cleanest countertops ever.

Ok, my wife says she tried bleach without success but I'm going to try it myself. Do you know how much bleach/water I should use?

I'd be looking into a way to dissolve the car wax first. A way that's safe for the counter top.

Liquid dish detergent will take car wax off. Which should also serve as a reminder to those who wash their own cars...only use dish detergent on your car, if you want to remove the wax.

I just used Dawn dish soap to get any remaining wax off, I too use it to wash my car. Basically back to square one on the counter top until I try the bleach, just need to find out how much to use safely.

I'd follow the cleaning instructions here. The part about bleach says "occasionally, wipe surface with diluted household bleach (1 part water/1 part bleach). Rinse top thoroughly with water and wipe completely dry."

like i said. you can't buff "matte". well, you actually can, but it would then be shiny, and not matte. and, imo, it would look great.
