HELP!! Scratches on Glass

HELP!! Scratches on Glass

Post by Kathy Hei » Sat, 21 Dec 1996 04:00:00



Hi...

I recently finished a very large project....two glass panels that were
used as inserts on French doors.  I wasn't aware of it at the time,
but I guess the panel must have been "scooted" across my worktable,
because once the panel was cleaned up and installed, I noticed a few
scratches across my glass!  These scratches are on a clear antique
glass, so they are, unfortunately, quite noticeable.  I was wondering
how one goes about trying to get rid of the scratches (if it is at all
possible).

Any suggestions?  Thanks!

Kathy

welp though i think we discussed scratches before there should be a
listing somewhere. if you can feel it with you nail, tough luck, can't
do anything about it, you'll have to remove the piece. if you can't feel
it with your nail (no clicking noise), then try using Cerium Oxide, and
water. mix it up into a paste and kepp rubbing it until the scratch is
gone. i also heard that toothpaste works (the crunchy kind), like crest.
