Window Scratches

Anyone know of any good ways to take a minor window scratch out without taking it in to the shop? I have an annoying scratch on my drivers side window from my dog-tags getting caught and dragging across the window.

If I can't fix it myself, I will definitely bring it in. She's far too new to have any bodily damage.

Any and all suggestions would be appreciated.

I work at Oreilly auto. We sell a product called glass scrub that works great. I've used it more than once and scratches and acid rain marks.

Who makes it, and what does it look like. I'm thinking of driving down there now.

I just went to both O'Reilly's and Auto Zone. Neither of them carried it.

Where the heck is this stuff?

Also, it's description says nothing about repairing scratches.

I work at the Collinsville,Va store. Our DC in Greensboro, NC should have it. I'm not sure if your local O'reilly can get it from them or not.

There's a bottle on eBay now.

Any very light duty scuff and swirl-mark removing wax/cleaner can be used on glass to good effect. You're just tryoing to polish up the inside of the scratch so you can't see it.

Are we talking a swirl remover for paint?

Yes. Paint's way softer than glass so, no risk there. Most of us have this around the garage so try it out.

Hey all, use the old school remedy that works...Bon Ami cleaner, available at any grocery store. It works great, have used it all my life to polish out minor scratches in glass. I have a dedicated buffer pad for the polisher, and just throw it in the washer between uses.
Good luck.
