How to Remove Scratches from Glass Coffee Table
Having a glass coffee table in your living room can elevate the look of your décor, but unfortunately it can also be prone to scratches. Most people are hesitant to attempt cleaning such delicate surfaces in fear of doing more damage than good.
Materials You Will Need
- Soft, lint-free cloth
- Baking Soda
- Fine-grit sandpaper
Treating Scratches with Baking Soda
Mix two tablespoons of baking soda with a few drops of water to create a paste. Gently rub the paste into the scratch using a soft, lint-free cloth. Rinse off the area with a damp cloth, and wipe it dry.
Treating Scratches with Vinegar
Using a clean cloth dipped in vinegar, gently rub the scratched area. The acidity of the vinegar will help to remove any light surface scratches from the glass. Wipe off any excess with a damp cloth, then dry the area.
Treating Scratches with Toothpaste
Using a paste-style toothpaste, gently rub the toothpaste into the scratch in a circular motion. This should help to remove light surface scratches and reduce the appearance of deeper scratches. Once finished, wipe off any excess toothpaste with a damp cloth, then dry the area.
Treating Deep Scratches with Sandpaper
Deep scratches may take more effort to remove. If the above methods don’t work, you may need to try using fine-grit sandpaper on the scratch. Gently sand the area in a circular motion, then wipe off any remaining dust with a damp cloth and dry. After sanding the surface, you can try one of the other methods again.
Treating Scratches with WD-40
If the other methods still don’t work, you can try WD-40. Spray a small amount of WD-40 onto the scratched area and use a clean soft cloth to rub the area. Once you are finished, wipe off any excess with a damp cloth and dry.
By following these steps, you should be able to remove scratches from your glass coffee table. However, if the scratches still remain, you may need to contact a professional to help repair the glass.
