Few other phones have a reputation for getting easily scratched on the back as much as an iPhone. But that is what phone case are for, no?
However, despite being encased in a protective cover, your iPhone can still get some ugly scratches from dust and other particles that get inside the case and ruin the phone’s finish.
Smartphone retailers recommend using very fine sandpaper to remove scratches yet this can result in a dull finish. So is there any way to restore your phone’s original luster without having to choose drastic measures (like buying a new iPhone)? Yes… by using an everyday household item!
Toothpaste and Its Wonderful Scratch Buffing Advantages
Found in every household, this item is used every day to clean teeth. Most people don’t realize other ways they can use simple toothpaste – one of them being scratch buffing from their phone!
What to do? The steps are simple and underlined in the following:
Turn off Your iPhone First
You don’t want to accidentally open any app on your device when doing the job so shut it off completely. Hold the lock button until ‘Slide to Power Off’ option appears. Slide the slider from left to right to complete the action.
Buff Scratch Prone Areas
Squeeze a pea-sized amount of toothpaste directly on the back of your iPhone. Begin by lightly buffing back of the iPhone with the help of a microfiber cloth. Take care to buff areas with scratches first, proceeding to rest of the backing. This will ensure a consistent look.
Don’t wipe the toothpaste away at once! Wait for two minutes and then spray glass cleaner along the back of the iPhone. Wipe both glass cleaner and toothpaste off using paper towels. The same process can be done to clean your iPhone’s screen.
