Things You'll Need
Brasso is a type of metal polish that cleans and polishes metal surfaces. When used properly, it is also safe to use on other surfaces, including CDs, glass and plastic. A small amount of the polish cleans the surface of the item and the product can even remove scratches. To remove those scratches, apply with a soft cloth.
Remove any part of the object that comes off. For example, if you are removing scratches from a cell phone, take the case off the phone first and remove the battery.
Pour the Brasso in a bowl and keep it nearby. Cover your workspace with a towel, to keep the Brasso from spilling and discoloring the counter or table.
Dip the cloth into the Brasso and apply it directly to the scratch. Follow the line of the scratch, working back and forth across the scratch.
Change your method of rubbing the scratch, varying between a back-and-forth motion and small circles. Working in just one direction can make the scratch look worse.
Wipe the Brasso off with a fresh cloth and check the scratches. If they remain, apply more Brasso and keep polishing and rubbing the surface until the scratch disappears.
Always use a soft hand and rub gently with a soft cloth. Using a paper towel or tissue can damage the surface and make the scratches look worse.
