My dogs have really scratched my glass door. Is there any way to fix it short of replacing?
Thanks in advance,
I found this on HELP FROM HELOUISE
Scratches on Glass
Is there a way to diminish a scratch on a glass coffee table?

Maybe yes, maybe no. It depends on the depth of the scratch and the type of glass. You'll need to know which kind you have -- plain, glazed, or tinted -- before trying any repair. Check with your local glass company or home-improvement store for information.
To deal with light scratches on plain glass, apply a jeweler's rouge (available at jewelry-supply stores). Follow the product's directions carefully; you don't want to damage the glass further.
For tinted and safety-glazed glass (which is often used for sliding doors), consult a professional. If the scratches are serious, the safest solution may be to replace the glass, because the entire structure may have been compromised and could shatter easily -- with a gust of wind, for example, or the weight of a pet jumping against it.
