How to Remove Scratches from Sunglasses?

0 votes

It's happened to all of us. We know at one point in time, you got a scratch on your favorite pair of shades. We also know you were devastated.

The good news is that there are tips and tricks you can use to minimize the look of the scratch, fill it in, or polish it over, so that you'll be back to sporting those cool frames in no time. Here are some handy methods to try to get your sunglasses back to tip-top shape.

Method 1: Brass or Silver Polish

Dab a bit of brass or silver polish on the lenses with a cotton ball and gently rub it around.
If there is any excess polish, remove it with a clean, lint-free cloth.
Repeat the process until the scratch has disappeared.

Method 2: Toothpaste

Important: You'll want to make sure your toothpaste is non-abrasive, non-minty, non-gel, and non-whitening. Your teeth appreciate all those good things, but your lenses sure won't! Best to stick with a regular paste instead.

With a cotton ball, rub the paste into the scratch in a circular motion. Give your lenses a nice massage for about 10 seconds.
Rinse the toothpaste off with cool water.
If there is any excess, get out a lint-free cloth and wipe it off.
Repeat if necessary, until the scratch is no more.

Method 3: Baking Soda

Mix one (1) part water and two (2) parts baking soda in a small bowl until you have a thick paste.
Rub the baking soda paste into the scratch for 10 seconds, using a cotton ball and a circular motion.
Rinse the paste off with cool water.
You'll probably have some excess, so wipe it off with a lint-free cloth.
Repeat if necessary.

Method 4: Vehicle Wax

Apply the way you'd apply wax to your ride: with a soft cloth and circular motions.
Wipe away any excess with another cloth. You may need to use multiple cloths, as wax adheres to fabric easily.
Repeat as necessary.

Method 5: Furniture Spray

Like car polish, the wax in furniture spray fills in the scratches. The only problem with this method is that the fix may only last a few days at a time.

Spray your lenses lightly. Don't go crazy, now.
Break out that lint-free cloth and rub the furniture spray around in a circular motion until the scratch and spray disappear.
Repeat as necessary, possibly every few days.

A simple way to remove scratches from sunglasses involves rubbing regular toothpaste on the lenses with a microfiber cloth, washing them, then rubbing them with a baking soda paste using a cotton ball. Finally, wash them again.
Rub the lenses with toothpaste
Use non-whitening toothpaste that is not abrasive. Check the label on the box or on the front of the tube to determine the type of toothpaste. Do not use gel toothpaste. Dab a pea-sized amount of toothpaste onto each lens, and rub in gentle, circular motions using a microfiber cleaning cloth.
Wash the lenses
Run warm water over the sunglasses to wash off the toothpaste. Dry the sunglasses with a dry microfiber cloth.
Rub the lenses with baking soda paste
In a small bowl, mix a quarter cup of baking soda with enough water to form a paste. Spread a liberal amount of paste onto each lens on the inside and the outside surfaces. Use a cotton ball to rub the lenses in gentle, circular motions.
Wash the lenses again
Wash the sunglasses with warm water. Dry the sunglasses, and check for any remaining scratches. Apply and rub the baking soda paste with the cotton ball again as necessary.
