Sir: Now that scratch cards have become part of everyday life for Independent readers, can we please have advice about how to remove the aluminium-coloured coating at the breakfast table without contaminating the toast and marmalade?

Alternatively, can you assure us that the coating has been cleared as fit for human consumption?

Yours apprehensively,

John Wilkin
