Estimated time taken: 30 minutes
Tools required:

  • Fine sand paper
  • Baking soda
  • Hydrogen peroxide

Step 1: Whiten your sink

  • This may sound like a funny first step, but it is necessary to do. If you don't clean your sink first, all the sanding you are going to do will create a cleaner and whiter mark on your sink that will cause your work to stand out.
  1. Sprinkle baking soda all over the ceramic parts of your sink
  2. Cover it with paper towels
  3. Coat the paper towels with hydrogen peroxide
  4. Let that sit for at least 2 hours
  5. Wipe clean

Step 2: Sanding

  1. Starting with about 240 grit sand paper, start sanding the scratch
  2. Slowly work your way up to around 500 grit sand paper, spending a few minutes on each different grit of sand paper. You will want about 5 different grits of sand paper
  3. By now you should start seeing the scratch fade

Step 3: Polish

  1. Depending on your sink, finish the job off with a ceramic polish
  2. Continue polishing until satisfied with results
