Autosol Marine Shine - Triple Award Winning Marine Metal Polish - Includes rubbing compound to remove scratches from stainless steel

"I recently bought a stainless steel stove, and "yours truly" used a Scotch Brite pad to clean a small section. As you can imagine, where the rough green side of the sponge was used - dulling scratches are now clearly evident. Do you know of any way of removing scratches from stainless steel other than replacing the whole stove top?"

Many thanks... any help you could give would be appreciated before my wife murders me.

"Firstly remove all sharp objects etc. from the house to ensure that your next call is not a 911 emergency call, should your wife not appreciate the new special effects you've given her stove top.

Okay, what you need to do is start with a much finer abrasive to try and bring back the shine. Start with a toothbrush and some tothpaste. If that has no effect, take it up a notch by using a very soft buffing wheel fitted to a power drill with a bit of "paint-restorer". You can get this in any auto parts store, it is used to bring back the lustre to the paint job on older cars. The main thing to understand when removing scratches from stainless steel, is that you don't want to make the scsratches worse, so only use really fine things to improve the brightness and not highlight the dullness even further."
