How to Polish & Repair Scratched Glass
There are few more timeless pieces of furniture than a glass table, whether it’s in your dining room or holding down the fort next to your couch. But the beauty of glass is also its downfall—it can get and show scratches way more easily than anyone would like.
Luckily, there’s a super easy way to remedy those unsightly marks using items you almost definitely already have at home. 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.
And that’s it! Beautiful glass that looks as good as new—and no one needs to know your minty fresh secret.
