” Method 1: Brass or Silver Polish
- Dab a bit of brass or silver polish on the lenses with a cotton ball and gently rub it around.
- If there is any excess polish, remove it with a clean, lint-free cloth.
- Repeat the process until the scratch has disappeared.
Method 2: Toothpaste
Important: You’ll want to make sure your toothpaste is non-abrasive, non-minty, non-gel, and non-whitening. Your teeth appreciate all those good things, but your lenses sure won’t! Best to stick with a regular paste instead.
- With a cotton ball, rub the paste into the scratch in a circular motion. Give your lenses a nice massage for about 10 seconds.
- Rinse the toothpaste off with cool water.
- If there is any excess, get out a lint-free cloth and wipe it off.
- Repeat if necessary, until the scratch is no more.
Method 3: Baking Soda
- Mix one (1) part water and two (2) parts baking soda in a small bowl until you have a thick paste.
- Rub the baking soda paste into the scratch for 10 seconds, using a cotton ball and a circular motion.
- Rinse the paste off with cool water.
- You’ll probably have some excess, so wipe it off with a lint-free cloth.
- Repeat if necessary.
Method 4: Vehicle Wax
- Apply the way you’d apply wax to your ride: with a soft cloth and circular motions.
- Wipe away any excess with another cloth. You may need to use multiple cloths, as wax adheres to fabric easily.
- Repeat as necessary.
Method 5: Furniture Spray
Like car polish, the wax in furniture spray fills in the scratches. The only problem with this method is that the fix may only last a few days at a time.
- Spray your lenses lightly. Don’t go crazy, now.
- Break out that lint-free cloth and rub the furniture spray around in a circular motion until the scratch and spray disappear.
- Repeat as necessary, possibly every few days.”
