Yes to Desolvit - because you asked I just tried it and it worked. Leave for a wee while (about 30sec in my case but can't see any problem with leaving it longer) and rub it off. I did it with the tips of my fingers and nails but one of those non scratch scourers would do it.
Lodge a complaint with the seller of the product and ask them to pay for the professional removal of the marks plus your money back for a product that is not fit for the purpose.

I've done that with a scourer - I suddenly had grey marks on some dishes. I took the scourer and a couple of marked dishes back and complained. The manager took care of me and my complaint. According to that manager the new scourer was manufactured in China and had recently replaced a NZ made product. I had a very informative conversation with that manager, he gave me my money back for the scourer (99cents[8D]) and he promised to have a serious chat with head office.
Quite probably I wasn't the only one who complained because - joy - the NZ made product is back on their shelves.
That's the power we have as consumers so why not use it.
P S : I don't think you'll get them to pay for cleaning up the mess but the mere mentioning of that possibility (you'd have to take them to the dispute's tribunal to have a chance) will make them take action. Either going back to the original supplier/manufacturer or getting the current manufacturer to clean up their act.
Maybe next time

Just remember - if a product is not fit for the purpose you are entitled to your money back. While the 99cents in my case wouldn't have bothered me it is a matter of principle for me. Those shops (or the importers they buy that crap off) make huge profits and if they think that consumers buy anything they sell they are wrong.
