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.
