  1. 1

    Test the mild polishing compound on an inconspicuous part of the car such as inside the boot or under the bonnet to ensure that it won't be too abrasive. Remember to use the mildest abrasive possible.

  2. 2

    Use a damp sponge to apply a mild polishing compound to the scratch.

  3. 3

    Scrub in a circular motion until the scratch is no longer visible.

  4. 4

    Apply liquid wax to a different sponge and buff the area in a circular motion.

  5. 5

    Buff the wax off with a soft clean towel.
