Repairing Scratches on Mirrors

Is there any product at all that can repair scratches on mirrors? I'm just sick: we just installed new mirrored doors on one of our closets; there were a couple of places where there were dirt marks just on the surface; glass cleaner and paper towels didn't do the job.

So I used a special scrubbing pad that is supposed to be safe to use on glass or mirrors, ha! Well it scratched my new mirrors. I checked at the hardware store and the clerk said there is nothing that will fix the scratches, but I thought I'd check with the ThriftyFun community before I give up.

Ask at an auto parts supply store for a product that can be used on windshields. Or, try at a windshield repair place. Either one may have a solution for you. (12/07/2007)

Over here, we have a product called Brasso, it's especially for polishing brass objects. See if you can find a similar product over there. All you do is place a tiny dab on a soft cloth and use lots and lots of elbow grease rubbing out the scratches. It works as a fine buffer. It will take a lot of work and time, but will get rid of the scratches, as long as they aren't too deep. If they are, I say to get a new mirror. (12/07/2007)

Yikes. I'd contact the scrubber manufacturer and tell them what happened. Maybe they can help you. There's also an eyeglass scratch remover that I've seen at Walgreen's and a dollar store. Might be worth a try. (12/09/2007)

Maybe you could try clear nail polish. (01/23/2008)

Read to use white paste tooth paste or a jewelry chemical they use to get minor scratches off of gem stones! I'm giving it a try tomorrow!
