Hi everyone, I don't know if you already know this or not, but I thought I'd share it. Last month when he was here, David mentioned that Mother's mag wheel/aluminum polish not only helps to shine metals, but works great at getting furniture scuffs out of plastic bases as well.

Well, I was a bit skeptical when he said that, but thought it would be something to try in the future.

So today, when I was bringing the new Eurekas down to the Studio and doing some rearranging, I noticed both the Eureka 664 and Hoover Junior had their fair share of scuffs. I grabbed a couple of rags, broke out the Mother's, and got to work! It took quite a bit of elbow grease, but now the 664's bright red-orange base looks SPOTLESS! The Junior has a lot of deep scratches as well, but the Mother's did make an improvement on the scuffs.

If you have any plastic-base Convertibles or Eurekas, and don't know what to do about the scuffing, it's certainly something to try...

well, to me Mothers is a miracle in a jar! ive had soo many beat-down plastic hoods that ive made-over with mothers. just rub rub rub into the the scratch, rub hard. works fabulous on the Convertible hoods. and removes paint scuffs on vinyl bumpers. i dont think it will work on bakelite.
