If you have a scratched windshield or window, you may be wondering how to fix it. Fortunately, there are several ways to repair auto glass scratches. The most common method is to use white toothpaste that contains baking soda as an ingredient. Simply apply a little toothpaste and rub it all over the scratched area.
Then wipe off any excess toothpaste with a damp cloth and see if the scratch has improved. Another option is to use cerium oxide. This is a special compound that can be used to fill in the scratch and start polishing it gently. The drill and rubber polishing wheel make polishing much easier.
Continue filling the scratch with more cerium oxide and polishing until the result is a clear and smooth repair. For best results, apply cerium oxide to a cloth and then to the scratch. If the solution gets into another part of the glass, it may cause small scratches. Jeweler's Rouge, cerium oxide paste and glass exfoliating compounds can be used right out of the box. White non-gel toothpaste and baking soda should be mixed in approximately equal amounts and diluted with warm water to approximately the consistency of the original toothpaste.
Powder-based agents can also be applied directly to the windshield or mixed with warm water to form a liquid with the consistency of milk. Once the glass in the bonded area is clean enough, you are ready to apply the glass repair solution.
