I was trying to sand out some scratches in our new soapstone counters . I read that I could use a 220 grit sand paper along with an orbital sander . I got out the scratches, but the sanding left a horrible white-ish finish on the counters . When I came home I rubbed some olive oil all over the counters ( I did not have mineral oil) . It is starting to look better. Does anyone have some suggestions to fix this , or am I on the right track ? Any advice will be appreciated .
