How can I remove scratches from porcelain?

Scratch Removal from Porcelain Sink

General kitchen cleaning or even washing dishes on a regular basis can cause a porcelain sink to incur scratches. A pumice stone, available at most hardware stores, should remove surface scratches from your porcelain sink. Fill the sink with water, then scour the scratches with the wet pumice stone to smooth them and clean the porcelain. However, it will not help with deep scratches. The pumice stone should be soaking wet or it may scratch the porcelain, too. It will wear away rather quickly, but that is the nature of the stone.

It works wonderful! I used it for my old sink and bathtub when we purchased our 50 year old house, and it even works better when you add Lysol toilet cleaner. (Just make sure that you wear rubber gloves) My tub looks now like new even when is about 40 years old!

Pumice may work great, but I have had great results with first toothpaste, and if no luck, glass/smooth top oven cleaner
