How to get scratches out of a glass window

May 21, 2019

Scratched glassAny marks on a window can be really distracting, but when they’re scratches, they can become a permanent source of frustration. They could be caused by an over-zealous dog or a cat hunting down a pesky piece of fluff. But don’t let these scratches get you down, as there are experts in glazing repairs right here in Buckinghamshire.

There are a few simple methods you can use to get these scratches out of your windows:

Before trying any of these fixes, use soap and water to make sure that the glass is completely clean.

Apply nail polish

Nail polish is a brilliant jack of all trades providing several uses, such as stopping your shoelaces from fraying and sealing an envelope. Clear nail polish can be used to touch up minor window scratches. You can do this by dabbing clear nail polish over the scratched area using a small paintbrush and leave it to dry for about an hour. Once it’s dry, add nail polish remover to a cloth and wipe the polish away.

Repair scratched glass windows using toothpaste

As bizarre as it sounds, non-gel toothpaste that contains baking soda may provide the fix to your problem. Apply the toothpaste to the scratched glass with a cloth, rubbing it around in a circular motion for at least a minute. Use a different clean cloth to wipe the toothpaste off. You may need to apply this a few times to completely get rid of the scratches.

Window repair kit

We have recently had our front door and windows replaced by Jack of Glass. They were great. The communication was amazing, we knew every step of the way what was happening and they left place spotless. Our new door and windows have completely changed the house.

Jack of glass have recently replaced all my windows efficiently and to a high standard. The price was also very reasonable. The customer service was outstanding along with the services they provide. Highly recommended.

Mr Bennett

I had to replace a small double glazed panel in a window. I though it would be difficult to get anybody interested as it was such a small job. However, Jack of Glass did the work. They visited the house to take the measurements, ordered the replacement glass and fitted it all very efficiently and at a reasonable cost. I will use them again.
