Even with the best care, a white dinner plate can get scratched. The scratches can be caused by something as simple as metal utensils rubbing against the plate or improper placement in the dishwasher. Once a plate is scratched, food can seep into the scratch and cause discolouration. Use baking soda to remove fine scratches from your white dinner plate and sliver polish if the scratches are deeper or more extensive.

    Apply the paste to the scratches, and rub it in with a soft cloth. Rub in a circular motion until the scratches are removed. For deeper scratches, apply a small amount of silver polish, and rub it into the scratches, using the same circular motion, until they are gone.
