The screen of your smartphone can easily be scratched, whether it’s from something bumping against it in your bag or backpack, or you have dropped it again. While some scratches don’t affect what you see on the screen, other scratches can make your phone difficult to use. In a previous blog, we talked about some ways to try and get rid of the scratch on your phone yourself. In this blog, we are going to give you some additional methods that you can try. Or, you can make sure the job gets done right by bringing your phone into Fix My Gadget. We can help fix your scratched screen and get your phone looking as good as new in no time.

Toothpaste could be used to help minimize the appearance of small marks on your phone screen. If you choose to try this method, be sure to use actual toothpaste and not gel-based toothpaste.

Dab a small amount of toothpaste on a cotton swab or a clean, lint-free cloth. Gently rub the toothpaste in a circular motion over the small scratch mark until the scratch is no longer visible. Take a slightly dampened cloth and wipe your phone’s screen to remove excess toothpaste. Toothpaste works well to remove scratches from plastic phone protectors, but may not be enough to remove scratches from glass.

Baking Soda

To use baking soda to cover up the small scratches on your phone, you need to make a paste. Combine two parts baking soda and one part water and mix until a paste is formed. When using this method, be sure that the paste is not too watery and do not use too much on your phone, as it could cause water damage. Once you have created your thick paste, use a cotton swab to apply a small amount to the scratch on your phone and rub gently. Use a slightly dampened cloth to wipe away any excess.

Magic Eraser

Magic Erasers can magically erase small and shallow scratches on your phone screen. Simply take a Magic Eraser and gently rub it over the scratch on your phone screen. One thing to keep in mind if using this method is that Magic Erasers are abrasive, so be sure to be gentle if you are using one on your phone screen and don’t use it for deep scratches. A Magic Eraser will only be effective on surface-level cosmetic scratches.

Car Scratch Products

Car scratch removal creams, such as 3M Scratch, Turtle Wax, and others, can help to minimize the appearance of scratches on your phone screen. Apply a small amount to a clean and soft cloth and rub your screen where the scratch is in a circular motion.

While these methods could work for small scratches, if your screen has deeper scratches, it is best to leave the fixes to a professional. Be sure to schedule a repair reservation at Fix My Gadget in Peoria.
