Scratches In Bathtub Finish

My daughter was being helpful by cleaning her fish tank in our brand new bathtub. In so doing she made some deep scratches in the finish. Is there something I can do to remove deep scratches and refinish the areas, short of a professional job?

Scratches In Bathtub Finish

What is the bathtub made of? What is the finish like?

Certain cast plastics, having the color embedded, can be sanded with fine sandpaper or a sanding sponge. If the finish was glossy then a plastic polish can restore the glossiness. A matte finish may look OK even after sanding.

If it's enamel over metal, are you sure it's scratched? Metal (like fish tank frame) rubbed on enamel can leave dark lines. These dark lines are easily removed with any household abrasive powdered cleanser. If it actually managed to scratch, look in appliance stores for a matching color of touch up paint sold in little jars with a brush top. With care, scratched enamel can be filled in using this paint.
