You could try car polishing cream with a light cutting compound, Kitten No 2 was a good one but be careful, try a small section first & be gentle.

Hello

You will be needing a scratch be gone kit.

Assess the damage. Determine if this is a deep scratch or a surface scratch, by running your finger across it. If you can actually feel the indentation, you have a deep scratch, gouge or ding. With clamps, carefully hold a small piece of dry ice over the gouged area. Hopefully,it will pop out, and not be as noticeable. Then you can treat it in the same way other scratched areas are treated in the steps below.

Use an abrasive pad from the Scratch-B-Gone kit to repair scuffs, light scratches and even deep scratches. The kit has 4 different abrasive pads and instructions to tell you which one to use depending on the severity of the scratches and scuffs. Otherwise, go to an automotive shop and buy different fine grades of sandpaper.

Apply a small amount of Ultra Shine from the Scratch-B-Gone kit onto the appropriate abrasive pad. Or use an automotive rubbing compound on the sandpaper.

Begin rubbing the damaged area of the satin in the direction of the grain covering over about a 5-inch area at a time. Slide the pad backward and forward increasing pressure as needed until you see the scratch is disappearing.

Repeat this process until the scratch is removed and the surface is restored. For a deeper scratch, dry rub the area with the coarse pad, and wipe area off with a microfiber cloth to make sure the scratch is gone.

Blend the metal surfaces by using the finest grade sandpaper or abrasive pad with the rubbing compound or Ultra Shine and gradually increase the area around the original damage to about three times the original scratched area. Be sure to go with the existing grain of the material so you don't create crosshatching.

SOURCE: My new LG refrigerator already

you can get scratches buffed out or you can do it your self with an an angle grinder with a buffing pad fitted. You will need buffing compound available at auto accessory stores hardware shops. if you cant get any help there try asking a plumber, as I know some that use this mehod to take out scratches in sinks etc. after installation. I have seen brilliant results with this method.

    Good morning; We have a new Jenn-Air black glass


    Any proprietary glass top cleaner should be suitable. Avoid using a wire based scouring pad but the Scotch type 'plastic/foam' cleaning pads are ok.

    I burned potato soup in my Le Creuset dutch oven.


    Go buy a scraper for a ceramic hob and a can of barbeque or oven cleaner.

    Spray the cleaner on and leave it for 15 minutes put on a pair of rubber gloves and use the scraper to break the surface of the burnt on stuff.

    Make sure you keep the blade of the scraper as flat as possible to the surface of the pot.

    Once you have scored some of the surface spry on some more cleaner and repeat the process

    I clean off burnt casserole dishes using that method

    3M 7447 pads get at auto parts store or more aggressive 180 grit sandpaper going with the grain of course. For daily cleaning use DeBruce Polish, it is non-toxic and odorless. DeBruce polish is also non-abrasive, also use DeBruce Polish on glass/ceramic cook tops. We get DeBruce Polish at debrucepolish.com

    Scratches on stainles steel door


    IF IT IS BRUSHED STAINLESS, AND THE SCRATCHES ARE REALLY BAD, YOU COULD TRY SOME STEEL WOOL TO SOFTEN THE SCRATCHES, BUT IT WILL BE A TRADE OFF OF MINIMIZING THE SCRATCHES AND CAUSING A SMEARED LOOK TO THE BRUSHED STAINLESS PATTERN.
