Instructions

  1. 1

    Rinse the scratched area with warm water to remove all accumulated debris, dirt and dust from the window.

  2. 2

    Mix the toothpaste and baking soda in a bowl until it becomes a thick, pasty substance.

  3. 3

    Apply the paste directly on the scratch, and allow it to sit for several minutes. Using a nonabrasive hand towel, run the paste compound into the crevices of the scratch. Because this paste solution is abrasive, it helps smooth out the scratches.

  4. 4

    Rinse off the paste debris from the scratched area with warm water. The scratch should no longer be visible.

Tips and warnings

  • If the scratch on your car's window is deep, you should consult an automotive professional, as this method is to be used for superficial scratches only.
