Simply so, how do you cover up scratches on a car?

To remove scratches from a car, wash the car first. Then, you can try buffing out surface scratches with toothpaste or scratch removal product and a microfiber towel. If that doesn't work because the scratch is too deep, sand down the area and repaint it.

Subsequently, question is, why does toothpaste remove scratches? Toothpaste marketed as non-abrasive still contains a small amount of an abrasive component, in order to be effective for cleaning the teeth. This abrasive component gently removes a thin layer of plastic from the lens, thus leveling out the surface and removing scratches.

Accordingly, does toothpaste remove car scratches?

Just grab a damp, soft cloth and a smear of toothpaste, and you can erase scratches and scuff marks on your car without much work involved. This trick works best if the scratches and scuff marks haven't fully penetrated the clear coat of your vehicle's paint. Add a dab of toothpaste to your damp cloth.

What types of scratches can be buffed out?

Small scratches can usually be rubbed out with polishing compound. The rule of thumb is that if your fingernail doesn't catch on the scratch, it's just a superficial clear coat scratch that can be smoothed out and made invisible.
