Wash and dry the scratched area. Before you apply toothpaste to the scratches, make sure that the area is very clean. Rubbing dirt and debris into the scratched area will make the scratches worse.

Dry your car with a clean, dry towel.

Apply a quarter-sized amount of toothpaste to a dampened microfiber towel. Whitening toothpaste works best, but you can try removing the scratches with any toothpaste you have on hand.

Note: You will need to apply the toothpaste with a soft, clean, microfiber towel to ensure that rubbing in the toothpaste does not cause more damage.

Rub the toothpaste into the scratched area using a circular motion. Push down on the microfiber cloth and move it in small circles to buff out the scratches. Do this until the toothpaste is well-distributed on the surface.


After you finish buffing out the scratches, rinse the area thoroughly to remove the excess toothpaste.


You may need to do more than 1 application to get rid of surface scratches using toothpaste. Check the area to see if the scratches are still visible and then repeat the process 1 or 2 more times if needed.
Make sure that you do not do more than 3 applications or you may damage the clear coat of the car’s paint.
