How on earth does that work? Does the Brasso take a layer off the Nano or what?
Nice photo treatment!
Oh that’s fantastic. I’ve had scratches on my 4G iPod screen for a while but never considered anything would shift it. I’ve used Silvo on the chrome with limited success in the past, but this looks well worth trying.
Thanks very much, Andy.
This is a well-known technique Ben. But some nice photos.
Fuck me! That’s like magic!
might just be me, but…5 looks like it still has a few diagonal scratches. time to break out the heavy sander, methinks ;)
Polish removes scratches! Film at 11!
I took mine to a jeweller’s and got my watch face polished at the same time. Dude only charged me $5.
Well, I’ve always used toothpaste for tiny scratches on my specs - I had assumed that would work for screens like this too :)
I don’t know whether or not to believe this. Has anyone else really tried this or is this just a cute photo essay…
Hi Patrick, there are a few small scratches left, but they are hardly noticeable. The whopping big scratch has almost been completely removed which is fantastic.
Dustin, I can’t guarantee it will work for you, but it definitely worked for me.
Dustin: Like I mentioned, it’s a well known technqiue, check out this - another documentation of the Brasso fix though I don’t actually know the origins of this technique.
Works for scratched DVDs sometimes too.
It works because brasso (and other metal polishes) contain a mild abrasive. You’ll find the natural gloss of the plastic will fade if you overdo it with the polish.
You can also use toothpaste - works great.
Plus it tastes good ;)
Does that mean if I ever run out of toothpaste on a sunday evening I can crack open the Brasso?
See, if everyone just listened to me and about an ‘invisible shield’ (google it) you wouldn’t have any scratches!!
About $20 and comes with lifetime guarantee as well.
Clifford - I’d think no, judging from the smell, you don’t want “Brasso breath” LOL
Are you kidding or did that really work out like the photos show. Let me polish my site the same way ?
