how to remove scratches from glasses with toothpaste?

I post at this other board and someone was asking about removing scratches from their eyeglasses. One person suggested toothpaste and even said she had used it.

I can't imagine toothpaste would do anything good for eyeglass lenses! Even basic plastic lenses without AR, I wouldn't think it would work well at all. Has anyone heard of this or tried it? It just sounds so wrong.

The process is pretty simple—first, make sure you have an actual toothpaste. Gel-style toothpastes won’t work for this. You’ll also want a damp cloth handy. Clean the glass thoroughly first, then rub a dab of toothpaste (they say “dime-sized,” but I think that depends on the crack in question and the size of the object you’re trying to fix) on the crack. Rub the toothpaste in firmly in a circular motion (but obviously not so hard you risk damaging the glass) for about a minute. Look at the glass, and if that did the trick, wipe the excess toothpaste away with the damp cloth. If not, repeat. That’s about it.

Obviously this isn’t a catch all, and we wouldn’t recommend it on expensive glasses or glasses you can (and should) get a professional to repair if they’re damaged, but if you’re short on cash or you have a pair of readers or sunglasses with those tiny annoying stress cracks in them, or a piece of glass furniture or glassware with a few scratches on them that you just can’t help but notice, it’s worth a shot.
