Can anyone tell me how to repair or reglaze a bathroom sink where the finish is worn off around the drain?
I had the same problem, after hiring Bath Gene to paint my sinks and bathtub. The paint wore off around the drain. My sinks are white, so I purchased some porcelen paint touch up at Home Depot. It last about a month with daily use, so I just dab on a little more and let dry throughly. It is a very small bottle, but last over a year. Hope this helps
Where I work, we only repair the marble sinks we make if they are messed up in a small spot. You will need some of the gel coat from the manufacturer, or you might be able to buy some from a hardware store, or wherever the sink was purchased. Make sure it's the right color.
If the damaged spot is too big, just throw the sink in the garbage and get a new one. I'd say too big is bigger than 1/4 inch square, but you can give it a try and see how it looks.
I PULLED THE STOPPER OUT OF MY BATHROOM SINK AND THE PIN BROKE OFF THAT HOLDS DOWN HOW DO I REPAIR IT""
I have a nasty crack in my porcelain sink, which is spoiling my lovely bathroom. The sink is sunk in to a 5ft long marble top so I can't just replace it - it was so expensive!
I have two worn spots in my porcelain tub. I bought a commercial bottle of something that was supposed to cover them after I lightly sanded the area around them. It worked for a little while, but now the spots are fully revealed again. Can anyone suggest a product that worked wonderfully? Thank you very much!

In California there is a company named Miracle Method they refinish tub and tops. They use a porcelain paint.
We often use it in stead of replacing fixtures. The finish is not as durable as the original but, it does extend the life of a fixture.
My bathroom sink has a dark color around the drain. It looks like the porcelain is worn off from cleaning. I would like to repair it myself. Does anyone know what I can use and how would I do this?
Two spots have appeared in my bathtub again where the white porcelain finish is gone. I previously used a product I bought at either Home Depot or Lowe's (can't remember which one!). While it was gloppy and I was not able to paint it on smoothly, it did cover the spots for about 2 years. The repair finish came off and now I'm stuck with the two spots again.
Do any ThriftyFun members have experience with a product that works?
Thanks very much!
