Trying to restore this piece of plumbing I bought and accidentally scratched.
In the image below you can see one of the original scratches at the bottom.
I did some research online and found that the brushed look can be restored with a scouring pad, like the green side of a sponge. I tried this but it instead appears to be removing more of the finish and making the surface more reflective. In the image below at the top left corner of the piece, you can see a patch which appears less brushed, which is where I scrubbed with the scouring pad.
Any tips on how to restore this piece?
