Some of the best scratch removal products include Quixx Paint Scratch Remover, Fu Finish Scratch Doctor and Simoniz Fix It Pro, according to Autos.com, while Consumer Reports recommends waxing products for this purpose, such as Black Magic Wet Shine Liquid Wax and Eagle One Nanowax. While scratch removal products can fill small, shallow scratches and make them less visible to the human eye, they cannot repair deep gashes or completely remove the scratches.
If the scratch is deep enough to reveal the metal beneath the paint, the car requires repainting. Scratches occur when an abrasive surface makes contact with the car. This could include tree branches, abrasive cloths and even clothing or grocery bags.
