Furniture Repair From Scratch

Use shoe polish (paste or wax-based) to touch up nicks and scratches on door frames and furniture. It's quick and easy to use, and when rubbed in really makes the scratch seem to disappear.

Look no further than your child's crayon box. Pick the color closest to furniture color. Fill in scratch. Buff with soft cloth and it won't be so noticeable.

My 3 yr. old took a fork to our tv hutch. I took your advice and used shoe polish. What a great quick fix. The scratches were hidden and I just had to buff the polish. Thanks!

Crayon's and marker's work well on carpeting also. Oh yes, and clothes if you have hemmed them up and need to let them down just look for a matching color in the crayon box to cover the white line left from the hem. However does anyone know how to get this to stay permanently. I have to use the crayon after every wash which is a pain if you are in a hurry to go someplace. Darlene
