  1. 1

    Buy carnauba wax. This specific type of wax is found in many car wax products, including Turtle Wax car polish.

  2. 2

    Spread the wax over the scratches with a soft, clean cloth. Make sure the cloth is completely clean, without any oils or other cleaners on it.

  3. 3

    Buff off the wax on the black surface with another clean cloth. The carnauba wax will cover the scratches, softening the edges and making them far less noticeable.

  4. 4

    Allow the wax to dry completely and inspect the results. Reapply, if necessary, to completely remove the scratches.
