Mike Smith: What is the name of the product and where can you buy it? At least show a picture of the bottle, ugh! :(
Mike Klimek: I wouldn't think it would work on scratches. The product is intended for chips that you can fill in. A scratch, unless very deep, probably wouldn't hold it.
auntshea04: would this work on scratches on the bottom of the sink?
Kenton Daniels: May need to flush out the bowl and turn the water off to the toilet for a while. Dry it out with a rag or something and allow it to sit.
chevymtrsport: Mike, I'm not sure if you will see this in time as I am on vacation and during a toilet repair I nicked the inside of the tub. I believe the tub is from the fiberglass family of tubs. Will this product work well with a fiberglass tub? I have read some negative feedback from the Homax White Porcelain Chip fix. The common response is the product wears off quickly.
moosolinisaki: What about a chip in a toilet bowl? It is below the water line so allowing time to dry isn't an option. Any way to fix it?
Mike Klimek: They sell bottles in a variety of colors including off-white (I think they refer to the color as "bone").
janice dobbins: how do you match the color. I have an off white tub.
Mike Klimek: A bottle of it costs $20-$25
robert justus: how much does it cost
Mike Klimek: To jesika1984: If you try it on a larger sized chip, I would use very thin layers of the liquid. You will probably have to use many thin layers, and then try to follow the contour of the surface. Make it level so it blends in!
Mike Klimek: To TracyG531...I used a product called Porc-a-fix, but they will all work the same. The Homax product that jesika talked about is fine too.
RainbowCupcake420: I got something called Porcelain Chip Fix by HOMAX that I got at Lowes!
RainbowCupcake420: Would this be okay on a bigger chip the size of a nickel if not a bit larger?
Mike Klimek: Blending it in is the most challenging part....its a matter of sanding with fine sandpaper (most kits include it in the package) until the area is level with the surrounding area, then buff it to a shine to match the sink or tub. It's best to use several thin layers rather than a thick coat.
shortbuiltguy: the chip is by the drain so i fixed it, now i need to figure how to make it blend into the bath so my room mate doesnt knotice it....
shortbuiltguy: i used some of that on a chip in my bath tub, what i want to know is how to make it look like part of the tub, i can see the chip polish, now i need to make it look as natural as possable... any good ideas?
spunky Xee: Thanks :D
Mike Klimek: It will work on a bath tub also, but I wouldn't rely on it for a large repair. If you have a chip on a flat surface you should be fine, but I would be reluctant if the damage was on a curved surface, such as where the side wall meets the floor of the tub.
spunky Xee: Will this work on a bath tub too? I have a small chip on mine.
Mike Klimek: You can buy these porcelain repair kits at most home centers. This particular one is called "Porc-a-fix" and can be purchased at Home Depot or Lowes, although other hardware stores have similar products and come in a variety of colors.
