How to Remove a Scratch on Your Car

Getting a scratch on your car is inevitable. You can't compulsively cover your car every time you park it to protect it from the smallest scratches. There isn't a product that shields your car from flying debris when driving down a rocky road. Unless you're willing to keep your car locked up in the garage and not use it to keep it safe from scratches, you don't really have a choice. What you have a choice on though, is the method by which you heal these scratches. That's what we have for you in this guide: fixing a scratch on your car in five easy steps.

Difficulty level: Moderate

Tools you'll need:

  • Shoe polish
  • Sandpaper
  • Rubbing compound
  • Water
  • Mild laundry detergent
  • Polishing wheel
  • Microfiber cloth

Note: The steps below will only work if the scratch isn't too deep. Larger scratches may require the use of paint sprayers and professional help.

Step 1: Wipe shoe polish onto the scratches. Filling scratches with polish will make them appear. This will help you assess the damage.

Step 2: Sand the scratched area with 2000-grit wet/dry sandpaper and plenty of water. Blow away all of the dust and keep sanding until the shoe polish disappears.

Step 3: Mix mild laundry detergent in water, and wash the scratch and surrounding area with the solution. This removes any wax or coatings that would otherwise affect the rubbing compound you'll apply. Use the rubbing compound to polish out the sanding scratches.

Step 4: Use a polishing wheel to bring the shine back. Be careful not to be too aggressive, as you don't want to buff through the paint into the next layer. This is especially important on high-crown or sharp edges.

Step 5: Lightly rub a microfiber cloth onto the scratched area to remove the last of the compound. Finally, apply car wax to match the shine of the undamaged areas.
