How to Remove Cell Phone Scratches Using Toothpaste

Toothpaste can remove unsightly scratches from cell phones and other electronic devices. Although there are several products on the market specifically for this purpose, toothpaste is inexpensive and readily available in people's homes. The toothpaste works as an abrasive, smoothing the edges around the scratch to make the scratch less noticeable. Although this method doesn't fix deep scratches, it may work on light surface scratches on your cell phone's screen or casing.
