How to clean scratches from glass?

Glass surfaces add elegance and sophistication to any space. But in addition to their beauty, they are also very fragile in structure, which can be a prerequisite for scratches, breaks, cracks and other violations of integrity.

Whether it’s a scratch on your window, tabletop, or mirror, knowing how to effectively clean and minimize imperfections can help restore the pristine appearance of your glass surfaces.

From Clean 2 shine, we share with you some techniques and tricks from our professional experience, with which you can get rid of unpleasant imperfections on the surface.

Reasons for these imperfections

Before diving into cleaning methods, it’s essential to understand the nature of scratches. They can occur due to various reasons like abrasive contact with hard objects or materials, wrong cleaning techniques using harsh, wear and tear over time from regular use.

Cleaning scratches – techniques shared by our team

While it’s not always possible to completely remove deep imperfections, you can minimize their appearance and improve the overall clarity of the surface. Here are some effective methods for removing the damages:

  1. Polishing compound – start by cleaning the area with a mild product to remove any dirt or debris. Apply a small amount of polishing compound to a soft cloth. The next step is gently rubbing the product onto the area using circular motions. Continue rubbing until the trail becomes less visible or disappears entirely. Finish with wiping away any excess compound with a clean, damp cloth and buff the area with a dry cloth to restore shine.
  2. Toothpaste – apply a small amount of toothpaste to the problem area. Then using a soft cloth or cotton towel, gently rub the toothpaste onto the scratch. Expert’s advice is to do it with a circular motion. Add more products as needed to finish the task. Wipe away with clean cloth and repeat the process if necessary until the scratch diminishes.

Homemade polish – mix equal parts baking soda and water to create a paste-like consistency. Apply it using a soft cloth or sponge focusing on the affected spot. Rinse with water and wipe away any residue with a damp cloth.
