Will toothpaste remove scratches from plexiglass?
Can you fix scratched clear plastic? Apply a mild abrasive, such as toothpaste, furniture polish, baking soda or plastic polish to the scratch. Try our VuPlex Plastic Cleaning Kit which will also give your surface a gloss finish. Wipe a clean cloth over the paste you have added in a circular motion.
How do you restore plexiglass? Remove deep scratches with wet/dry sandpaper. Lubricate the sandpaper with water and sand by hand with a circular motion. Start sanding with a relatively coarse paper, such as 320-grit, then move through the grits to increasingly finer ones until the plastic is scratch-free. Finish off by buffing with polish or wax.
Can you buff out plexiglass? The one drawback to plexiglass is that it can get scratched and marked up easily since it has a relatively soft surface. If you have scratches on your plexiglass and you’d like to get rid of them, you can buff with sandpaper or even use a propane torch to have shiny and new looking plexiglass in no time.
