Culture marble renewal


I have cultured marble counter tops with built in sinks. Counter tops and parts of sink have yellowed. Still have shine on counter. Yellowing appears to be below wax finish. How can I make it all uniform and white with no yellowing?? This happened shortly after puchase 18 years ago and company will not help me.

I don't think there's too much you're going to do at this point. After 18 years, the stains probably set.
Were the stains due to hair dyes or medication or did they just spontaneously discolor?

Do a search for "cultured marble stain removal". There might be an answer out there.

That condition is known as "ambering". It happens to most clear resins over time. If sun gets to it it happens quicker. I'd say after eighteen years you have had your monies worth - time for a change.
