Touch-screen smartphones can be useful gadgets for those who need to stay connected on the go. Unfortunately, touch screens are very scratch-prone. A lot of usage, combined with the tendency for owners to stick them in pockets, purses and backpacks, can cause touch screens to become scratched. You can remove some, if not all, of the scratches on your touch-screen phone by using one of several scratch-removing products.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Order a bottle of iDrops (see Resources). This product helps remove scratches from your phone by filling in the scratches and restoring the original factory look to your touch-screen device. Place one to four drops on your touch screen and rub the liquid onto the touch screen using a cotton cloth.

  2. 2

    Purchase Applesauce Polish (see Resources). Applesauce allows you to refinish the surface of your touch screen and bring back its original look. Much like with iDrops, you simply use a few drops of the Applesauce Polish on your touch screen and wipe the substance onto the touch screen using the provided cloth.

  3. 3

    Use Radtech's Ice Creme kit (see Resources). This kit not only removes scratches from your touch screen, but can restore other scratched locations on your device, as well. The Ice Creme package includes two different restoring compounds, two polishing clothes, two applicators and a metal refinishing pad.
