Plumbing Question

Stainless steel scratch

I have just had a new stainless steel sink and drainer fitted and have managed to scratch the drainer after placing a stone plant pot on it. It was only small and light, but unfortunately I turned it while pulling dead pieces off the plant! I have tried using Cif, Brasso and another type of paste metal cleaner and I have to admit the scratch does look better. The drainer does have a brushed finish (ie it looks sort of scratched anyway, in a circular motion!) and I'm concerned that if I use these creams etc too much it will look too polished! Does anyone know what I could use instead which might be better? And is the manufacturers finish (Franke) sufficiently 'deep' to not be affected by any polishing I might do? Thanks :-)

i have used the green scotchbrite to remove very slight scratches from kitchen sinks before, dont go too hard in one area and spread out (feather) to the edge, be careful as it can go gold looking from over working, hope this helps

Hi pook

Try T-Cut this works wonders, (try a small area at a time).

Hope this helps
