Scratches on your porcelain sink are not just an eyesore, they actually make it more difficult to clean. That said, a porcelain sink can become scratched easily and you can't just replace it when damage occurs. Even though it is difficult to restore a porcelain sink to its original glory, you can repair scratches on porcelain and significantly improve the cosmetic appearance of your sink.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • Porcelain paint
  • Epoxy

  1. 1

    Wipe clean the surface of your porcelain sink with a paper towel and rubbing alcohol. You can also use soap and water. Never use an abrasive cleaner on porcelain surfaces because it dulls and scratches them.

  2. 2

    Dry the surface of your porcelain sink after you have cleaned it. The surface must be free of lint, dust and other debris in order to be repaired.

  3. 3

    Fill all the chips, cracks and scratches on your porcelain sink with epoxy. Put the epoxy on a cosmetic wedge and carefully dab it into the affected area. Smooth out the surface with the wedge so the epoxy is only in the scratch, chip or crack.

  4. 4

    Allow the epoxy to set for an entire day. This will ensure the epoxy is completely dry before you complete the repair.

  5. 5

    Paint the spots that you filled in with the epoxy with a enamel or epoxy paint that matches your porcelain sink. Use a small paintbrush for precision.

  6. 6

    Allow the paint to dry for two days before using your sink.
