Updated on June 7, 2014

Removing Scratches

People frequently drop their cell phones and PDA’s, which in turn can cause numerous, small hairline scratches and sometimes even noticeable obvious scuffs. These flaws can cause your phone to look a little shabby, and it can also occasionally make it difficult to read texts, play games or seeing what you need to on your touch screen. If you are trying to restore your screen by getting rid of those scratches, make sure it is done correctly to ensure that no further damage is caused. Using even the finest of sandpaper or other similar products can create more scratches. Fortunately, there are some useful products to assist you in the refurbishing your cell phone.


  • Buy a scratch remover for cell phones. When purchasing this product, make sure to check if it is to be used solely on the screen or if it can be used on all the surfaces of the phone.
  • Wipe down your phone with a previously dampened paper towel. This will ensure that any excess dirt is wiped off. Now, dry your phone with a dry paper towel.
  • Apply a tiny amount of the polishing paste to a soft cloth. Rub the solution into the scratches, moving the cloth in a circular motion for a few minutes to help buff out the scuffs and scratches. Make sure that all of the scratches are covered. For deeper scratches, repeat the process a few times.


  • Micro-fiber cloths are good for scratch removal because they are very soft.


  • Some scratch removers are only for phone screens, and some are for other kinds of surfaces. Be sure to check if the one you're buying suits your needs.
