    Hi all

    I have had quite a bit of difficulty removing a basin from my bathroom wall due to the amount of silicone which had been lagged behind it (by previous owner of house)
    I was a careful as I could be but it took me hours to get it off the wall as I didn’t want to pull any tiles off whe removing.

    The new basin I am replacing with is slightly lower and I have managed to put a couple of scratches in the ceramic tiles the top of which will be seen. It almost looks like pencil marks.

    Just wondering if there are any ideas for removing or making less noticeable. Photo below.

    thanks

    Can you feel a scratch with your finger nail? if not try some wd40 and a cloth.
