Workshop: Toothpaste Scratch Removal
Scuffs and scratches on your MP3 player or mobile phone are really annoying. You can remove most minor scratches and marks using toothpaste, or a similar mild abrasive. Just polish the scratch away using a tiny amount of toothpaste and a soft cloth, moving in a circular motion – just as if you were polishing a car, only smaller!
Once the scratch has been buffed out, you can remove the toothpaste smell with a little ordinary foam cleanser.
CAUTION: Not all plastics can be polished this way, and some plastics have only a thin outer coating that might be worn away using this technique. Test the process on a small, non-visible area before you attempt to buff out a scratch.
