All newly purchased smartphones or tablets shine with some special freshness and purity. But not even a few weeks have passed when this pristine cleanliness gradually fades away, giving way to small and large scratches. No matter how carefully you handle your gadget, this process is inevitable. It's good that there are several ways to return the old shine to the shabby surfaces of the smartphone without a visit to the workshop and replacing the screen.
You will find the first scratch remover in your bathroom. Please note that it should be a normal toothpaste, not a gel-based one.
• Apply a small amount of toothpaste to a cotton swab or clean, soft cloth.
• Gently rub the paste in a circular motion over the scratch area of the screen.
• Then wipe the screen with a slightly dampened cloth to remove excess paste.
2. Automotive Scratch Remover
Car surface scratch removers such as Turtle Wax, 3M Scratch and Swirl Remover can minimize or eliminate scratches. Simply apply the cream to a clean, soft cloth and wipe the screen with gentle circular motions.
3. Sandpaper or sander
Sounds a little unexpected in terms of removing scratches. But the secret is to use the smallest paper you can get your hands on. This method can be somewhat risky, so it's best to practice on similar surfaces before starting to handle your phone.
4. Baking soda
Baking soda can be an affordable scratch remover.
• Mix two parts baking soda and one part water in a small container.
• Stir until a thick, uniform paste forms.
• Apply the paste to a clean, soft cloth and gently wipe away scratches on the screen in a circular motion.
• Then wipe the screen with a slightly damp cloth to remove any baking soda residue.
5. Baby powder
Adding water to the baby powder will give you a paste that can also be used to remove scratches. It should be used in the same way as described in the previous paragraph about baking soda.
6. Vegetable oil
Vegetable oil works well as a temporary solution for removing very small hidden scratches. One drop of oil rubbed into the surface of a screen worn out by time can restore its former shine for a certain period.
