Tutorial video on how to remove scratches from your cellphone screen. If toothpaste, bananas, lotion, vaseline, CD cleaner, and Brasso hasn't worked, THIS WILL.

This is a "last resort" kind technique, and requires a lot of caution and patience. If you can purchase a replacement screen or housing faceplate for $20-$30, I would highly recommend you do so. This tutorial is design to remove scratches if the replacement screen is $100+.

You will need:
- water
- scissors (to cut tape)
- electric tape
- a pen
- paper towels
- 2 cleaning clothes (microfibre = good)

Sandpaper:
- 400 grit
- 800 grit
- 1000 grit
- 1500 grit
- 2000 grit (if you can get some)

----

How to Wet-Sand
- spray on a bit of water
- sand the screen using medium pressure until the previous scratches vanish
- dab with paper towel and check for evenness
- repeat if necessary
- once the screen looks even, process to the next grit of sandpaper

How to Polish
- dab on a generous amount of polishing compound
- rub in a circulate motion with medium pressure using a cleaning cloth
- rub until the compound disappears
- buff/wipe with a seperate cleaning cloth
- repeat if screen doesn't have a glassy finish

This process may take up to an hour or more.

Be sure to:
- TAKE THE BATTERY OUT
- DON'T BUFF / POLISH WITH DIRTY CLOTHES
- DON'T USE TOO MUCH WATER
- BE PATIENT

If you can, practice on another device you don't use and don't ever plan on using.

Best of luck guys!

I'm absolutely sure this technique works and kudos to you for showing it but I am nowhere near patient to even try this. Also, I would probably end up messing up my device completely.
