While this won't work for deep gouges, it's the perfect trick for minor scratches. All you need is a lint-free cloth, a non-gel TOOTHPASTE (one with baking soda is even better), and a damp cloth. First, clean the glass well and dry it using a lint-free cloth. Apply a dollop of toothpaste to a soft cloth and rub it into the scratch using a circular motion. After buffing for 30-40 seconds, wipe the toothpaste off with a damp cloth. Dry again with the lint-free cloth. Repeat if needed.
