How to Remove Scratches from the Car at Home

For some people, including me, their vehicle represents their lifestyle and their status. It may sound silly at first, but there are a lot of people who pride ourselves in our cars. In fact, we don’t like them, we adore them. That is why we are giving them all the love and attention. On the other hand, we don’t like to spend as much money on our vehicles. That includes repairs, maintenance and all the other costs related to our vehicles. Whatever we can, we do it alone and most of the time, we try to find old spare parts to replace the non-working ones. And there’s nothing wrong with that because people should be encouraged to do the repairs themselves.

Every now and then, there is a possibility that somebody will scratch our vehicle. The damage isn’t grave, but that line looks quite ugly on your car. But what can you do about it? Could be that the paint is the only issues, but there might be some bends as well? We have taken this question into serious consideration and found ways to fix this issue. Instead of focusing who did it, you should get down to removing the scratches immediately. The thing is, you can deal with this issue efficiently. Keep on reading to learn how.


The most popular and a quite effective way to deal with scratches on your car is by using a paste made especially for that purpose. All you need to find is some sponge or similar material and use it to spread out the paste over the scratches. The whole procedure is done quite fast, and minimum effort is needed when erasing scratches from your vehicle.  The fact is that if the marks haven’t fully penetrated the clear coat of paint on your car, the trick with paste will work. You will be thrilled with the results and the car will look as if it has never been scratched.

For darker colors, we recommend applying shoe polish when removing scratches from your vehicle. The high gloss is the result of the procedure with shoe polish which will highlight your car’s appearance.

Thanks to the innovations nowadays, you can find various products on the market which can help you deal with this issue if you don’t want to use one of the recommended solutions. It doesn’t matter what your car looks like, what the color of your car is and how large the scratch is, the compound from Never Scratch gets the job done. The procedure is similar as with the other pastes and all you need is a few minutes of applying it to the problematic area.


The final tip which you can do on your own at home to remove scratches from your car is with wet sand. The high-grit sandpaper can fill in the scratches when you spread it along the length of the scratch. After that, we suggest applying the waxing compound on your car. This is probably the most used way to treat scratches on your vehicle, but for the whole look of the car, you must wax every part of it to equalize the color.

We hope that these tips will help you get the look you wanted for your car, and help you do it on your own.
