Hi. I'm Rachel Yatuzis and I'm going to show you how to remove small scratches from window panes. The best thing you need is a little gritty substance called whitening toothpaste. This stuff is awesome for buffing out scratches on glass. Any big huge scratches, it's not going to work. You're going to have to have the glass replaced or have it buffed professionally. But if you just got little tiny scratches, whitening toothpaste is awesome. You just want to get a paper towel or a sponge or you know, just something to use to apply it. Get a dab of the toothpaste on to your paper towel and just buff it. And keep doing this. Do it really really well. Make sure to go around the scratches so that it looks even. Do a, you know, a bigger area then just where the scratches are. Takes a little bit of elbow grease. You'll feel it working the biceps. And then, get some vinegar and water. Use that to rinse off the toothpaste. And check and see if you've removed them. You may have to repeat this process a couple of times. Don't get discouraged. It may take three or four tries before you can actually get the scratches off. That is the way you that you do it. I'm Rachel Yatuzis and that is how you remove small scratches from window panes.
