My kitchen worktops were finished with several coats of Osmo Polyx when they were installed just under a year ago. Inevitably, despite best efforts they are at the stage where some maintenance to the finish would be helpful (the odd scratch and minor blemish) - my theory being it's better to regularly maintain the finish than let it deteriorate to the point where it needs stripping back and starting again. Can anyone offer experience or advice with this - what solvent if any helps with cleaning before applying the finish, any need to key in the existing surface, how to blend in scratches without sanding right back and leaving obvious signs of repair where the ageing is then different etc.
