DRIVERS are amazed by an ingenious trick that removes scratches from your car’s paintwork – and it does so with just two household ingredients.
A light scratch can cost between £60 and £100 to repair, but if you use this tip you’ll need to spend less than £2.
TikTok user @andriyvitaly revealed how to remove everyday stains using just Diet Coke and talcum powder.
Video footage first shows her applying the fizzy drink to the scratch, followed by the powder.
After a few seconds, she rubs it with a clean rag and the scratch disappears.
Users were quick to comment below, praising the impressive hack.
Another product that can remove car scratches is toothpaste.
First you need to find out how deep the scratch is on your car by running your fingers over it.
If your fingernails don’t catch, the scratch is in the clear coat and toothpaste may be able to fix it.
You’ll need to wash and dry the affected area to make sure you don’t rub any debris or dirt into the scratch.
Use warm, soapy water, then rinse before drying with a clean, dry cloth.
Next, take a dampened microfiber cloth and put about a 2 cent amount of toothpaste on it.
Rub the toothpaste into the scratch in a circular motion.
And apply enough pressure to ensure the toothpaste spreads well over the affected area.
When you’re done rubbing out the scratches, rinse the area thoroughly with soapy water to ensure excess toothpaste is removed.
Finally, dry it off with a dry microfiber cloth.
If the scratch is deeper than the clear coat, toothpaste won’t work.
You will need to buy a scratch remover which costs around £10.
