Effective Glass Scratch Removal Practices


Effective Glass Scratch Removal Practices

Glass applications have come a long way from conventional usage on windows and car windshields. Glass furniture gives your living space a cool and contemporary aesthetic. Glass coffee tables and dining tables give off a beautiful and sophisticated outlook, but unfortunately, they are more prone to getting scratches. Even a minor scratch can remove the sheen off the glass. The good news is that you can fix your table with a glass scratch removal service whether it’s a light or deep scratch. So, how do you keep your tabletops and other glass surfaces looking sleek and new?

Polish With Toothpaste

Ensure the glass is clear of any debris by washing it off with a clean cloth and then allow it to dry first. Dampen a lint-free cloth using lukewarm water then squeeze it till no more water drips out. Note that any debris on the microfiber cloth will result in uneven abrasion and even more scratches. Apply a whitening non-gel toothpaste on the surface and gently rub in small circular motions for about 30 seconds using the dampened soft microfiber cloth while checking how it looks. Use a toothpaste that contains baking soda since they are best for glass scratch removal. Polish the surface to shine using a fresh damp cloth

Rub Nail Polish On Isolated Scratches

Clean the glass normally to remove debris from the glass surface. Apply a small coating of nail polish over the scratched area using an applicator brush while minimizing contact with the surrounding surface. The polish will get into the scratch, removing any visible flaws. Leave the polish to seep down and dry for about an hour. Apply nail polish remover on a clean cloth then wipe over the scratch. After removal, you can now admire the restored shine of your glass.

Polish and maintain your glass surfaces regularly to improve its light transmission and appearance. Never tolerate a dirty glass; apply a non-stick hydrophobic coating to prevent the possible accumulation of mineral deposits which will also reduce the frequency of cleaning.
