The scratch was a very light one. I found a very old bottle of Marveer and have been applying it regularly. It doesn’t get rid of the scratch, but camouflages the mark somewhat, so is barely noticeable.
Marveer was a great product which is not made anymore.
Just as a sidebar note….when I was talking to one of the hardware shop men, it turned out he worked for many years at the Marveer factory, and was delighted when I told him I have this old bottle.
Yes Energetic Essence I was very unhappy when re-sanding was mentioned.
Thanks for your interest.
Didi, I’m not sure if the Marveer would be suitable for an outdoor step. I had some wooden steps (3) built at my back door, and the guys have recommended having them stained with proper outdoor stuff which will protect them from the rain. I suppose Marveer wouldn’t do any harm. Let us know.
I can’t help you with the marks already made but I do have a suggestion for preventing future marks and scratches when moving heavy appliances around. Your hard ware store should have some form of appliance slides, white Teflon discs that cup the appliance rollers or feet and spread the weight out over a larger area. They provide a very slick bottom surface that makes moving appliances a breeze and won’t mark your floors.
