phone screen scratches

Makes sense actually…

Obviously it’s something you want to avoid, but accidents happen. If you leave your keys and your phone in the same pocket there’s a pretty good chance your screen will get scratched up. While it may feel like the end of the world, it doesn’t have to be. Did you know that it’s actually pretty easy to get rid of these scratches? And the magic ingredient is something you’ve already got at home in the bathroom!

Scratches on your phone screen

Alright, let’s be real, if your screen looks like the one in the picture here, there’s not much you can do to save it. You may be able to get a professional to put on a new screen for you but our tip isn’t going to do the trick. However, our lifehack will help you get scratches out. We’ve all been there; your screen works perfectly fine but you just can’t ignore those scratches. You can feel them while scrolling and swiping and you can always see them. This nifty trick will help you finally get rid of them.

Here’s what you’ll need to do

It’s actually pretty simple. You’ll need: your phone, a q-tip, and a tube of basic, white toothpaste. AKA no fancy whitening toothpaste or gel with microbeads. Just basic white toothpaste like we all used to have. First make sure there’s no dust or other filth on the screen because you don’t want to end up making more scratches. Then put a bit of toothpaste on the q-tip and rub it generously onto the scratch. After that make small circular motions on and surrounding the scratch with the q-tip. If the scratch isn’t very deep, you’ll see it disappear right away. Carefully dab off the rest of the toothpaste with a damp cloth and voilà.
