restoring Cultured Marble

I have a Cultured Marble shower which has a brass frame around the glass door and window. I want to change to a frameless shower frame but the old brass frame left the Cultured Marble yellowed where it was attached to it. Is there a way to clean the yellow stain from the Cultured Marble

Welcome!

Depending on how far you want to take this, the surface can be renewed.
Here's a link to a product called Gel-Gloss:

The Gel-Gloss alone might be enough to clean the stains. If not the surface can be wet-sanded and buffed similar to a car.
I consider the buffing advanced. You would need a buffer and automotive finishing compound, then reapply the gel coat.

I've buffed out minor scratches to the surface of older cultured marble with a car polishing compound. However, if yours has discolored, it may be difficult to restore depending on how deep the discoloration goes.

Buffing with polishing compound sounds like a great first choice. Go for it.
