Limestone is very soft and should not be sanded this way unless you want to completely matt it. Most polished stones have a luster that is lost when cut.
It is possible to grind limestone, but only professionals can. This is a very delicate process and given the softness of the limestone it is important not to exert too much pressure on the grinder. Clean the surface with water to remove crushed limescale.
Use an orbital sander and fine-grit sandpaper. Kies 220 is recommended for polishing ceramic tiles. This will remove the glaze from the tile, but the surface will remain smooth. Grinding should be a slow and tedious process.
Take a soft cloth, dip it in mineral oil (olive oil or linseed oil) and gently rub the scratches on the limescale. Watch the mineral oil penetrate the stone and remove the scratch in seconds. Use a stone sealer to remove minor scratches.
Limestone tiles are available in three basic designs: polished, semi-gloss and mirror polished. Limestone is soft, porous and stains easily and is also sensitive to hard water. Lime must be treated with a sealant that penetrates the limestone to reduce the color of the stain.

If you have slight scratches on your ceramic or porcelain tiles, you can use toothpaste, a clean cloth, fine sandpaper, vinegar, and a clear urethane sealer on your floors. If you have plywood or hardwood, you will need less equipment. All you need is a pencil, white vinegar, a lint-free cloth, and another rag or rag.
Granite and Natural Stone Scratch Repair
As with granite, you can gently remove scratches with fine sandpaper or steel wool, but be careful not to create new scratches in the area. Then rinse the area with water to remove any abrasive particles and then apply a special marble sealer to protect the countertop.
If a stone falls off, the scratches are smoothed out within minutes so that the stone looks as good as new again.
- Moisten the scraped sandstone and the surrounding area until the stone is visibly moist.
- Work a piece of sandpaper over 60 gravel on the floor and surrounding area.
