DIY Tricks To Get Rid Of Stubborn Car Scratches
It is a universal truth that no car owner likes to see a small scratch of a few centimetres on his car. As these scratches are inevitable and common, they have to drive with them. Although, at the same time, their presence touches your heart for a moment whenever you see them. Anyhow, by applying certain do-it-yourself tricks, you can get rid of these small scratches and keep your car looking as new as it was on the first day you brought it from the showroom.
Understanding The Scratches: Normally before, going for sale, a car undergoes multiple layers of paint and therefore normal scratches don’t even affect the final layer of the paint. Removing or hiding these scratches is quite simpler and you don’t even need to pay a high price for removing them or buy any expensive tool.
Using Toothpaste: This might surprise but the toothpaste which you use to clean your teeth can also be used for removing minor scratches from your car. Interestingly, the process is quite simple and very easy. Just squeeze and apply a small pea-sized toothpaste on the scratch and rub a clean and damp cloth on it moving in a circular direction. This is one of the simplest and cheapest ways to remove scratches from your beloved car.
Polishing and Using Wax: The use of polish and wax is quite harsh, and used for smoothening the surface of scratches. To get better results use a spongy cloth to apply on the areas. Apply the wax and polish gently on the scratched areas in a circular direction.
Scratch Remover Pen: Nowadays, the use of scratch remover pens have gained popularity for removing minor or thin scratches. These pens have a special liquid filling the gap of the scratches. The use of these pens helps in hiding scratches.
These are three budget-friendly methods of removing minor or thin scratches from your car without any major effect on your pocket.
