Automobile mirrors are truly versatile devices, used to make defensive turns and passes on the roadway, and also to check your mascara before starting off on your journey. Unfortunately, these mirrors can become scratched both inside and outside of the car by flying rocks or flying children's books from the back seat. It is possible to avoid replacing a scratched car mirror by filling in the imperfections with a commonly-found household product: toothpaste.

Locate the correct type of toothpaste. Avoid toothpaste that contains any whitening crystals, which could cause even more small scratches. Also avoid gels as these will be completely ineffective. Instead, pick out a tube of classic, non-whitening toothpaste.
Apply a thin layer of the toothpaste to the scratch with a cotton swab.
Allow the toothpaste to dry for three to five minutes and remove any excess with a sharp razor blade.
Rinse away any excess toothpaste with cool water and dry off the mirror with a lint free cloth.
