The winner: After dropping the lid of a pot on the rim of my white ceramic sink, I had a chip in the ceramic. I had a correction pen on hand and, after drying the chip, the correction fluid covered the chip for several years. This trick works also on good white plastic. If done right, it will not be noticeable. Ingrid Lachner, Charlotte
