Good news: Suzy’s midcentury house included a bathroom with a Nutone recessed fold-down bathroom scale. Bad news: It was all pitted and icky from exposure to moisture and who know what else over the years. Happy ending: Suzy used Liquid Stainless Steel to repaint the piece, inside and out — and it looks great!
I often get questions out how to clean up pitted and rusty chrome. I am not an expert on minor, topical repairs to freshen up chrome, but I think some readers — and Kate — have been successful with some of the products out there.
Re-chroming — real-deal rechroming — is super expensive, I’ve been told.
All said… for some products … like a Nutone built-in bathroom scale, which *may* have come in stainless steel originally, or which is so large that it really needs its nice finish, I think that this liquid stainless steel might be a great solution.
Susy used LSS Liquid Stainless Steel:
Thanks, Suzy, for letting me show your photos! The revitalized scale looks great!
