    How to remove a silver mark from bath 19th Sep 19 at 12:24 PM
    I scratched the top of our enamelled bath with my silver metal watch strap. It does not feel ridged so don't think I have scratched deeply if at all. Any ideas what I can use to remove these dark marks. Wife is giving me gip over it.
    Many thanks.

    Washing up liquid
    Cif
    Sugar soap
    Green scourer lightly
    Bleach
    Hot water and a cloth, plenty of elbow grease

    I believe there's a special rubber that tradesmen use to remove those sort of marks. I don't know the name of it, but one was used on a similar mark on the rim of my toilet bowl. Perhaps if you ask in a plumber's merchants they may be able to help.
    The bigger the bargain, the better I feel.

    I should mention that there's only one of me, don't confuse me with others of the same name.

    A bath rubber !

    A lint free cloth and a bit of toothpaste might also work

    I had rust marks on a plastic shower tray and they came off with a 'magic sponge' from Poundland.

    Thanks for the suggestions guys. The toothpaste has helped a little but the marks are still quite visible. Will try to get hold of one of those sponge rubbers I think but I'm in Spain and not sure how available they are here?

    Any kind of metal polish will bring it off. Or T Cut.
    Eat vegetables and fear no creditors, rather than eat duck and hide.

    Get a bath rubber as suggested
    I'm only here while I wait for Corrie to start.

    You get no BS from me & if I think you are wrong I WILL tell you.

    How about Barkeeper's Friend? It works well on pan marks on my ceramic sink.
