How to Use Dialux Polishing to Remove Deep Scratches

Updated February 21, 2017

Dialux-brand polishing compounds are designed with specific applications in mind. To remove a deep scratch from a stainless steel appliance, combine the use of a number of Dialux-brand polishing compounds. The procedure is straightforward and requires a few additional supplies from a hardware store. No special equipment is needed.

Wash the scratch and the area surrounding it with a water-moistened clean cloth. Dry the scratch and the area surrounding it with a dry cloth.

Apply a line of Gray Star Dialux polishing compound to the scratch. Place a buffing pad on the left edge of the scratch. Press down on the pad as you move it across the scratch to the other side. Lift the pad off the scratch once you reach the other side. Repeat the process as many times as necessary until you can barely see the scratch.

Wipe the scratch with a dry cloth. Apply a line of Gray Star Dialux polishing compound to the scratch. Repeat the procedure with the polishing pad. Repeat the process as many times as necessary until you can barely see the scratch.

Wipe the area with a dry cloth. Apply a line of Aqua-Green Rouge Dialux polishing compound to the area where the scratch was. Repeat the procedure with the polishing pad, using the lightest touch possible for a total of five times.

Wipe the area with a dry cloth.

Tip

The buffing pad must be moved with the "grain" pattern of the stainless steel appliance, and not contrary to it.
