Tips on removing small stains on concrete counter tops:

Polishing the stain out too aggressively will change the appearance in that area. Can you try your treatment first in a inconspicuous area?
Wet the surface and begin polishing lightly with the a high grit pad, like a #1500.
Try a #800 grit if the stain is not being removed. There’s a danger that grinding too aggressively with the #800 grit pad could change the look of the surface slightly.

Keep polishing until the water gets cloudy.
Sponge it off to see how the stain looks regularly.
If the stain is removed, dry and apply sealer as per manufacturers instructions.

If you require a higher shine, go over the stain again with the #1500 grit and #3000 grit pads.
Let the surface dry then apply sealer as per manufacturers instructions.

Tips on fixing scratches on porcelain tiles: 

Polished porcelain tiles may have a glossy, polished glaze, ie they are not uniform all the way through like granite, marble etc. Other tiles may have a lacquer finish. Rubbing in one spot (either by hand or with a grinder) may leave an area of hazy finish, ie not the usual gloss finish as the rest of the tile.

If the scratches are minor, try baking soda, toothpaste, brass polish or Barkeepers Friend to manually remove porcelain scratches.  Thoroughly clean the scratch, then apply over the length of the scratch.  Buff the scratches with a soft, damp cloth.  After it is thoroughly clean and dry, some people have success sealing the tile by applying car wax to bring up the gloss again. This manual method needs a lot of effort (elbow grease!).

If you wanted to try our pads, we suggest you start with a #3000 grit.
If that did not remove the scratches,  try a #1500 grit, finishing off with the #3000 grit.
You may need to go as low as #800 grit.
Always try first in a inconspicuous spot.
