Plumbing Questions? Ask a Plumber for Answers ASAP
Hi, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I have been in the plumbing and plumbing repair field for 20 years. I will be glad to help you today. Any chance the paste has taken the finish off? The finish may have been taken off of the handles as it is chrome plated.
Hi, no the paste did not budge the black marks at all it was the harpic toilet cleaner that caused the staining, not the paste.
I would think that toilet cleaner would take the finish off as one of the ingredients is hydrochloric acid
So there is no way of reversing this or any product that would counteract the staining effect of the acid?
Well the thing is, the finish has been removed, not stained. If it was a stain you could remove it by soaking it in vinegar. I am pretty certain that the finish is ruined though. I am sorry to tell you that.
Sometimes the answer is not the most pleasant and I do regret it.
Thank you. You were very helpful and very responsive.
