Use Brasso to Remove Scratches From Glass

You can use the metal cleaner and polish, Brasso, to buff scratches from glass. The Brasso acts as a filler for the scratches. If you don’t have Brasso on hand, other metal polishes, especially those jewelers use, will also work.

Supplies Needed

  • Brasso
  • 100% cotton balls or soft clean cloth


  1. Clean the glass to remove all oil, dust, and debris.
  2. Put a dab of Brasso polish on a cotton ball or cotton cloth. Less is more. Too much Brasso can damage the glass.
  3. Polish the scratched area of the glass for several seconds, using circular motions.
  4. Rinse in warm water and use a dry cloth to finish up.
  5. If the glass retains a foggy area, you can refurbish with nail polish remover.
