Metal scrapes on white Corelleware?


Someone helped me do the dishes and ended up "scraping" one of my Corelleware white casserole dishes with a metal spoon. This "marked" the white with grayish lines. Is there a way of getting rid of them or has the glaze been gouged and I now have a permanent internal design?

I don't know what would work, but here is what I would try. Use a pencil eraser to rub baking soda over the mark. Automotive rubbing compound might be a better choice of abrasive.
The utensil was probably stainless steel, but acid might do some good.

The spoon that was used is stainless steel. The person that "helped" doesn't understand the concept of soaking or that they often don't help...
The baking soda should be made into a paste or used dry with the gum from the eraser backing it up?

Try it dry first. If that fails, wet it. The pencil eraser is only to focus the treatment, to confine the area that might be dulled by the abrasion.
I hope you will let us know what works. I'm curious.

I thought about that, but I've never tried that product; so, I couldn't recommend it. I suspect it would work, too!

Buy something called Bar Keepers Friend. I used to use it for my Corningware glass stove top and still use it for just this thing. It is a wonderful product, very fine so it does not scratch, and it also gets these marks off Pfaltzgraff dishes. It is a lot less than buying the speciality product they sell for this.
Barkeepers Friend is a cleanser available next to all the other powdered cleansers in a gold container. I think Barkeepers Friend is bleach free too. http://www.barkeepersfriend.com /
