    Not sure what you people are smoking, but that doesn’t do a thing. You may as well just use water and a wash cloth and scrub your brains out.

    The baking soda method is awesome! It worked so well!

    HOORAY!!! The baking soda and window cleaner worked! We used Parker & Bailey glass and multi-surface cleaner. Very little rubbing was required.

    I had this issue, and the above solutions helped, but didn’t completely erase the marks.

    I happened to have some silver polish hanging around, and that completely 100% did the trick with just a little elbow grease. Don’t despair! Try silver polish; it’s made to remove metal tarnish from metal without damaging it – try a bit in a hidden spot first, then move on to the marks. They’ll come out!

    The baking soda was magic. Thank you. I thought my sink was ruined. Now, it is just like it was new.

    Two words: Magic Eraser. :) Takes them right off and I have a house full of porcelain told countertops.

    I simply rub the mark with “suede/velours gum”. It requires little rubbing and no chemicals.

    The baking soda/Windex combo did not work at all. Very disappointed.

    Tried a Magic Eraser…didn’t work. Tried my ceramic stove top cleaner…worked like a charm. Needed a little extra rubbing in the bad spots, but got them all. Looks almost new.

    We get marks on our porcelain sink from stainless steel Revere Wear bowls. We tried various remedies, but found Weiman Glass Cook Top cleaner to work perfectly. I imagine any brand cook top cleaner will work.

    I use “Natural White” stain removing toothpaste. I rub the toothpaste over the scuff marks with a damp paper towel and they are instantly removed. And, it’s non-abrasive. I then rinse the sink with warm water.

    Tried all methods to remove stainless steel marks from dinner knives on plates.
    Ceramic stove top cleaner did not touch the marks. Baking soda either. Wrights Silver Polish and a little rubbing took off 99% of marks. Wish it could be 100%, but they look so much better; they plates are no longer slated for a garage sale.

    Yay! Magic eraser didn’t touch the marks, but metal polish and a little rubbing worked perfectly. Thanks Brianna and Roz!
