I am based in Edinburgh and when i was cleaning up a kitchen that i had did some work in i gave the kitchen doors a wipe down with a sponge and it has left slight scour marks on the doors. The doors are red in colour and i think this hasnít helped matters. The kitchen is nearly new and was sourced form MFI so i cant get any replacements. The customer is threatening legal action if i cant get a solution and im obviously worried. Is there any way that this type of high gloss can be repaired or re lacquered?
Any advice you have would be greatly, greatly appreciated!!

You could try a colour match car polish, and hope for the best.

My only guess would be that if you can find a local manufacturer of gloss finish doors, they may be able to help since they will have the machinery and experience required.

I have had a lot of success in polishing scratches out of plastic with fine wet & dry then mildly abrasive polish. Try a good quality car polish applied with a soft clean cloth, turned frequently and then buffed off gently when dry. The gentle abrasive might reduce the appearance of the scratches and the wax might fill the remaining scratches and disguise them.

Hi Sean, A sponge should not leave scour marks on a glossed unit, was it a sponge or a scouring pad or something else? If it was a sponge and has left marks is it due to a cooking residue i.e. fat which should be easily removable with a proprietry cleaner. If it was a sponge then it could be a manufactures problem which is now unsolvable so I would refer your customer to the MFI recievers if this was the case but I ca'nt see a sponge causing that sort of damage

It could if it had been picked up from a gritty floor or bucket.
