  • Kitchen faucet escutcheons scratch sink china?

    I'm replacing my kitchen faucet (Moen - mid 1980's).
    My question is regarding the white porcelain sink.
    The old Moen has a huge escutcheon covering all three sink holes; when I pull it off, will I find that it has scratched an outline in the china?
    I want to use all three holes separately (faucet/sprayer/soap dispenser), but not if it means I'll have the imprint of the old escutcheon to live with.
    Thanks.

    You wont know until you pull it out.
    It should clean up with a razor blade and cleaners...
    I like to use the {WORKS} its a toilet cleaner that realy does the job on porcelain.


    If it dosent get a faucet with a base.

      You won't have to worry about an imprint, if the faucet was "packed" with putty like us old timers used to do then you won't have to deal with rust that can creep from the holes in the sink. Depending on the condition of your existing sink you may have to clean up the deck area with a scotch brite pad or a pumice stone. Remember to dip the pumice stone in water and use it while it is wet to clean you sink. A dry pumice stone will tear things up.

        I second the pumice stone trick.
