There is nothing more annoying than finding a scratch on one of your glass surfaces. However, all is not lost, and it is possible to remove scratches. It depends on the length and depth of the scratch as minor scratches can be removed at home; however, more profound or more prolonged scratches will require professional scratched glass repair services. We will now look at a couple of tips that can help you to get rid of minor scratches.
One of the first methods you can try is repairing scratches using toothpaste. Just about everyone has toothpaste in their homes, which makes this method quite easy. First, you will need to clean the area of the scratch using a clean cloth. Then, dampen a clean microfiber cloth and place a dot of toothpaste on it and apply the toothpaste to the scratch. You should rub the area with the fabric and toothpaste in a circular motion for about a minute. Then, you should check the status of the scratch. If part of the scratch is removed, you should add more toothpaste and continue rubbing the area until the scratch is completely removed.
Next, another method that we will look at involves using metal polish. First, you should clean the scratch and the area with a clean cloth. Then, wrap a damp microfiber cloth around your finger and add a small amount of metal polish to it. It would be best if you used a metal polish that contains cerium oxide in it as this is more effective on scratches. Rub the polish into the scratch in a circular motion for 30 seconds to a minute. It is best not to add any more polish since too much metal polish will cause damage to the glass surface. Once the scratch is removed, you should clean the area to remove the polish from the glass.
In summary, we have just looked at two highly useful scratched glass repair tips. However, if these don’t work, then you should hire a professional to restore your glass.
