Found 28th May 2009
It's a black granite effect one from ikea. the scratch isn't deep as when i rub my finger over it it disappears but comes back as a white scratch mark
is there anything that can be used to make it not show?

I don't know the material that Ikea uses for its granite effect worktops, but what I would do is buy a little tin of gloss b;acl aeroplane modelling paint from a toyshop (the most common make is Humbrol) , use fine brush to paint into the scratch and then use a clean rag to wipe the edges clean, making sure not to let the rag lift the paint out of the scratch.

You can but scratch repairs in B&Q or DIY stores.

If the scratch isn't long you could always try clear nail varnish.

think i might have a look in b&q then thanks :thumbsup: it's a matt worktop so don't think gloss clear nail varnish would help
thanks everyone for your advice :thumbsup: rep being left as we speak ;-)

i do, but between things the kids do and things getting put on there that shouldnt, mines been in for about 5 years so no biggie here

There seems to be a problem with some of the Ikea worktops (see ]http//fo…165) - check with Ikea as they will refund you it seems.:)

You'd be surprised at the number of people who don't. Another favourite of my ex wife was putting coffee cups on the side and leaving big ring marks everywhere that just wouldn't come off.

Sorry but I would be questioning the quality of the worktop with IKEA if you managed to scratch it so easily and so quickly, imagine how it's going to look after a few months use.

A permanent Black Marker Pen will do the job with a thin nib like those sharpie ones:thumbsup:

oh sweetie, get a nice chopping board and leave it out just over the mark x x
