Glass tables are great options to enhance the flair and décor in your home. There are varieties of glass tables you can choose from including transparent or tinted glasses among other types. However, with this high functionality of glass tables comes a high risk of scratches. Manufacturers will, of course, use hard glass types for the tables, but this doesn't mean that your glass tabletops are scratch proof. Things such as dragging keys and appliances like computers over the glass tabletop can cause scratches. If you have kids in your house, their mischievousness can also lead to scratching of your tables. Regardless of the cause of the scratch, here are a few quick remedies you may find useful.
Using Nail Polish
Nail polish is one of the quick fixes for scratches on your glass tabletops. Start by spraying the scratched area of your glass tabletop with a glass cleaner. Second, use a lint-free cloth to wipe the cleaner off the tabletop. You will then have to find a nail polish and use the brush to apply some of the polish gently over the crack or scratch. When doing this, make sure you concentrate much of the polish within the scratch. To remove excess polish or the polish around the scratch, dip a lint-free cloth into a nail polish remover and use it to gently rub off the extra polish. A cotton cloth or swab can also work in place of the lint-free cloth. Leave it overnight and then clean your tabletop again.
You can also use toothpaste to repair scratches on your glass table. You will start by cleaning the surface of the table as well with a glass cleaner and wiping it off with a lint-free cloth. After the cleaning, you need to squeeze a small amount of toothpaste dab over the scratched surface. Using a moistened sponge, rub the paste thoroughly over the surface until the scratches disappear. Find a clean cloth and use it to wipe the toothpaste off before giving the surface a final thorough cleaning.
Using Jeweller's Rouge
After cleaning the tabletop, pour small amounts of jeweller's rouge onto a clean cloth and rub it over your scratched tabletop surface. Doing this will polish out the scratch. You can use as much of the rouge as possible until you are satisfied that the scratches are no longer visible. You can then finish your glass repairs by spraying the tabletop with a glass cleaner and using a lint-free cloth to wipe it off.
