Clever hack to remove scratches from your car with 2 household ingredients
DRIVERS have been blown away by a clever hack that uses two household ingredients to remove scratches from their cars.
Fixing a car scratch can normally cost £90, but with this hack it could cost you less than £2.
TikTok user @andriyvitaly explains how to remove scratches with Diet Coke and powder.
She puts the fizzy drink on the scratch first, and then the powder.
After a few seconds, she rubs it with a clean rag and the scratch disappears.
Users were quick to comment below, praising the impressive hack.
Another product that can remove car scratches is toothpaste.
First you need to find out how deep the scratch is on your car by running your fingers over it.
If your fingernails don’t catch, the scratch is in the clear coat and toothpaste may be able to fix it.
You need to wash and dry the affected area to make sure you don’t end up rubbing any residue or dirt into the scratch.
Use warm, soapy water, then rinse before drying with a clean, dry cloth.
Next, take a dampened microfiber cloth and squirt on about a 2 pinch amount of toothpaste.
Rub the toothpaste into the scratch in a circular motion.
And apply enough pressure to ensure the toothpaste is well distributed over the affected area.
When you’re done rubbing out the scratches, rinse the area thoroughly with soapy water to make sure you’re removing any excess toothpaste.
Finally dry with a dry microfiber cloth.
If the scratch is deeper than the clear coat, the toothpaste won’t work.
You will need to buy a scratch remover which costs around £10.
