    Oh...I tried a Mr rubby on the numbers and letters of the US test Niche and nothing came off...so either OP must stop drinking drain cleaner each morning, or it's peculiar to that grinder.

    Hehe! Confession time. I almost sent dfk's Niche on to the next recipient minus the numbers! Cleaned it ready to go and the first wipe showed smudges . . . . I meant to contact Martin @Niche but totally forgot.

    I guess I'm just too careful...I am quite gentle with stuff I suppose....it's why the cat likes me so much!

    I’m very gentle when it comes to rubbing!

    I expect there are different grades of wire wool . . .

    Did you use paint stripper ? Mk1 etc. Suspect there has already been some Mk's. Nothing dramatic as far as I know.

    Maybe you used Cif etc - doesn't scratch. It does but they aren't easy to see. I use that one for lapping in cast iron lathe parts. Stainless cleaners are even better 0 if that's the right word.

    Seriously it might be interesting to know what you did use???

    Just my damp cloth. Some kind of micro fibre sort.

    No wonder you use bottled water. Your tap water must be extremely hard.

    If I wanted to get rid of grease, finger prints and my amazon 6" square babies flannels didn't work I'd use window cleaner on the same thing. Alcohol (IPA), water and a wetting agent. I am curious about what could cause problems. All I have wiped a few times is the funnel - covered in bean oil so a few bits stick after a while. Just the flannel. Had to buy a large pack and thought they wouldn't last long. More a case of thowing away as fed up with the colour.

    Thanks for the suggestions, and the comedy touches (which i might add didn't wear off any further numbers) - i have had an email reply back from Martin earlier this morning, less than a business day after sending it which is impressive for a small issue - and they are reviewing print durability with their supplier.
