Can you refinish a plastic kayak

No poly-plastics of the type used in manufacturing can only be armor-all surface cleansed but makes the craft very slippery to lift and use. Color is restored though. Make sure there are no brittle areas that have been 'cooked' by the sun while stored in a yard. IMPORTANT!

A few days ago we had the thermocast shiny black kitchen sink installed. No paperwork came with the sink! How do we maintain the sink and will it scratch? Any special products that we should use to...

A Master Collection designer Thermocast cast acrylic double bowl kitchen sink with a rich high gloss finish that is easy to clean with non-abrasive cleaners.

  1. 1

    Put on rubber gloves. Spray the sink with a nonabrasive commercial kitchen cleaner, covering all surfaces of the sink with the spray.

  2. 2

    Dampen a sponge in warm water. Wipe the sponge over the sink, scrubbing at any visible dirt.

  3. 3

    Rinse the sink with warm water and then dry it with a clean towel.

  4. 4

    Fill the sink with warm water and add 1 tsp. of chlorine bleach per gallon of water, once a month. This will sanitize the sink, and is recommended by Thermocast. Let the bleach-water mixture remain in the sink for 15 minutes, then drain the sink. Rinse.

  5. 5

    Apply liquid automotive polish to a clean, soft cloth. Wipe the cloth over the sink to remove any scratches that may have occurred. Buff the sink using a circular motion. Rinse.

Abrasive cleaners may scratch Thermocast sink surfaces--using abrasive cleaners may also void the warranty.

Recomended cleaning for kitchen porcelain sink

Scouring powders or cleansers contain abrasives commonly used to clean and remove stubborn stains that are slow to respond to chemical action alone.

However, use of an abrasive cleaner may scratch and damage smooth finishes such as porcelain, fiberglass or enamel making it even more difficult to clean the surface in the future.

New kitchen and bathroom fixtures do not require a scouring cleanser to clean them of soap films and body oils. Dissolving soil by soaking with the correct non-abrasive cleaner (especially a foaming type that sticks to the surface) then wiping and rinsing usually does the job.
When cleaning older, abused fixtures, choose the mildest abrasive cleaner available such as a Soft Scrub -type product or baking soda, and apply just enough that, with light pressure, the embedded soils are loosened and may be rinsed away.

Small scratches and one burn spot

I'm sorry to hear someone marred this beautiful sink on you. This is essentially an acrylic sink, the same material used to make acrylic soaker tubs. Using any type of abrasive cleaner on this sink is going to dull the finish. This includes baking soda. The liquid auto polish referred to is essentially car wax not an abrasive polish. The car wax contains carnuba wax that will return a lustre to the finish but unlikely to remove the damage you've described. The manufacturer recommends using only non abrasive cleansers. There won't be anything you can do about the burn mark, this is going to be permanent. It could be from heat or possibly something caustic. If the gray scratches in the other sink look like they are on the surface of the acrylic you may be able to get them off. If it looks like the gray is underneath the acrylic finish then you will need to contact Thermocast for an acrylic repair kit for the color of your sink. Hopefully they are able to provide such an accessory. Use a plastic pan scraper and see if you can scratch the gray off the surface. The plastic is softer than the acrylic and will not scratch it. Thermocasts customer service line is 678-445-2022 or email them at . Their website is

Clean glass range door

Hello. I recommend a product called Cameo. Cameo is a non abrasive cleanser actually designed for the new type enameled sinks recomended by American Standard. AND iit works great on oven door glass. You can get it at Walmart. Very inexpensive and works great on all kinds of surfaces that may be hard to clean but you don't want a harsh cleaner that might damage the surface or scratch. Has a very light to almost none scent. Very good for cleaning the oven both inside and out. Doesn't have the chemical smell left by some cleaners that can be intensified by heat.

The drain was dropped in the sink and we thought it was a scratch but it is a small chip you can feel.  I read about epoxy but is this going to be too thick, being it is a very small

I assume this is a new sink and you are trying to save it. There are several options depending on how much time and or money you want to put into the repair. The simplest is what you mentioned yourself. just be sure to clean the surface completely, you may want to use rubbing alcohol to be sure there is no oil or contaminates on the surface. Be sure the area is completely dry before applying the epoxy. There are several types and you will have to determine which is closest as a match for color and sheen. With that said dip a toothpick into a small drop of epoxy and then transfer it to the desired location. Keep in mind that it will more than likely be higher than the existing surface. Once it has completely dried, 48 hours for a good cure, then take a single edge razor and gently press it to the surface and push it along at a 25-35 degree angle to remove the high spot. You may need to do this several times to get the desired finish.
If you are not happy with this then you can have the whole sink refinished professionally by a number of companies. I have used Bath Crest with good success.
