Well, I was trying to do good and clean, and I ended up scratching my bowl with the metal part of this stupid toilet brush (which is now in the trash)! :

DH says that to get the scratches out, it will have to be re-enameled. Ugh! I have no idea how much that will even cost.

Anybody got any suggestions? Or am I SOL till we can swing this?

: It wouldn't be so bad if it was OUR bathroom, but no, it's the kids' bathroom and the one that everybody else who visits uses! :

If it bothers you that much, new toilets are pretty cheap, possibly cheaper than re-enameling an older toilet. Just fyi. I know it sounds wasteful, but you have to do what makes sense financially for your family if you are struggling.

Why not just repair the scratched bits? They sell enamel repair kits - the stuff paints on like nail polish. But you'd have to keep the potty dry until it sets. They're pretty cheap, too. This is the one we used on our washroom sink : http://www.mileskimball.com/jump.jsp...ProductID=5807

Now, that's cool, weebitty! I had no idea that stuff existed and I bet DH didn't either....for that price, I'll definitely give it a whirl.

I hear ya, HB. And replacing a toilet is just such a hassle, y/k? It wouldn't be so bad if it didn't just look so dirty all the time. If you don't know they're scratches, they kinda look like dirt tracks or skid marks. Sigh. I'll let y'all know how the enamel stuff works.
