Say Goodbye to Car Scratches Using These 4 Quick Hacks!

Does your car have those ugly scratches? Perhaps you thought that having them removed at the shop would cost you a fortune — which could explain why the scratches are still there.

What if we told you that you can get rid of those scratches without having to shell out a big chunk of money? Not only that, but the ways to do this are also super easy. Also, the items you need for this are extremely easy to find. You must have some of them at home already.

To make your life easier, we at Veteran Car Donations have rounded up the following super easy ways of fixing light scratches on cars:

  1. Toothpaste

Who would’ve thought that toothpaste can be a good remedy for car scratches? Many car owners have been using it to eliminate minor scratches on their vehicles. It’s time that you do, too.

Before you start, make sure that you’ve wiped clean the affected exterior surface of your car using a dry cloth. Grab another cloth and wet it with clean water. Pour in enough toothpaste depending on the size of the scratches. Then, rub it evenly using a circular motion. Do it continuously until the scratches are gone.

  1. Nail polish

Nail polish can help you fix up light to moderate scratches. Since nail polishes come in various colors, you can pick one that perfectly matches your car’s paint. Experiment with your chosen shade on a tiny scratch first as the color of the nail polish may get a little different after drying.

  1. Multi-purpose lubricant

Believe it or not, hiding car scratches is one of the purposes of a multi-purpose lubricant. Spray a fair amount on the scratched surface. Then, using a clean microfiber towel, wipe the lubricant firmly on the scratch. You’ll see the scratch fading away in seconds. Dry it out.

  1. Compound

Rubbing compound has been proven to be effective in eliminating car scratches quickly by scraping them until they’re no longer visible. With its strong abrasive power, the white compound is known to be the most suitable option for removing scratches.


Not Sure What to Do with Your Beater?

If scratches are the least of your car worries and you’ve already spent a fortune to get your vehicle fixed but to no avail, maybe it’s time to retire it. Hand it over to us at Veteran Car Donations, and we’ll give it a new and worthy purpose. We’ll turn it into an instrument for improving the lives of those struggling veterans in your local community.

Our team will sell your donated vehicle through an auction and use the proceeds to support the life improvement programs for veterans of our IRS-certified 501(c)(3) nonprofit partners. These nonprofits cater to former U.S. service members who are homeless, those who are unable to find decent jobs, and those suffering from service-connected disabilities as well as serious illnesses, including mental health issues.

They use the funding we give them to provide their beneficiaries with housing and financial assistance, family support, employment and livelihood opportunities, free comprehensive health care and medical treatment, psychotherapy services, educational scholarships, and many other benefits.

You’ll reap meaningful rewards in return for your charitable contribution. Instead of driving your vehicle to our nearest facility, you’ll get a free professional towing service from us. We can collect your vehicle anywhere in the country.

Your gift will also entitle you to claim the maximum tax deduction in the next tax season.

On top of these material rewards, you’ll experience the priceless joy of knowing that you’re giving back to those who put their lives on the line to protect ours and secure our freedoms, too.

Since we’re willing to accept nearly all vehicle types, feel free to donate your unwanted car, truck, van, motorcycle, snowmobile, or even your granddad’s old motorized wheelchair.
