ApartmentTherapy reminds us of a fine fix for scratches on glassy surfaces like mirrors and windows—toothpaste! 

Shortcut: Fix a Scratched Window with Toothpaste

All you need is a lint-free cloth, a non-gel toothpaste (one with baking soda is even better), and a damp cloth.

1. Clean the glass well and dry it using a lint-free cloth. 
2. Apply a dollop of toothpaste to a soft cloth and rub it into the scratch using a circular motion.
3. After buffing for 30-40 seconds, wipe the toothpaste off with a damp cloth.
4. Dry again with the lint-free cloth. Repeat if needed.

Rule of thumb: the scratch should be visible but not large enough to catch your thumbnail.
