Repairing a burn on my arborite countertop

August 14th 2000

Question from: Tom

Dear Shell,

We inadvertently placed a hot pot on our arborite kitchen countertop leaving a slightly scorched partial ring. Is there anything we can do to repair or conceal this?

Thanks, Tom

Dear Tom,

Oops! This always makes your day doesn’t it ? My suggestion is to pick out some ceramic tiles that blend with your kitchen décor (maybe you have some left over from the backsplash). Router out an area suitable to set in 4 to 6 tiles using silicone caulking for adhesive and grout.

It’s just that easy.
