Full Answer

  1. Apply toothpaste

    Dab nonabrasive tooth paste onto a cotton ball, and rub the glasses with the ball in circular motions for 10 seconds. When rubbing, apply moderate force to avoid scratching the glasses any more.

  2. Rinse the glasses

    Wash away the toothpaste with cool water, and wipe off the excess toothpaste with a lint-free cloth. Blot the glasses dry, check the glasses for scratches, and repeat the process until the scratches disappear.

  3. Apply baking soda if necessary

    For stubborn scratches, pour 1 part water in a mixing bowl, add 2 parts baking soda, and then mix to form a paste. Dab the paste onto a cotton ball, and rub the scratches with the ball in a circular motion for 10 seconds. Do not apply excessive pressure, as that may scratch the glasses. Rinse the glasses clean with cool water, and wipe off the excess paste with a lint-free cloth. Repeat the process until all the scratches are gone.
