How do you remove scratches from a car windshield?

My car windshield was scratched by a falling tree limb last night. It seems small enough to fix without replacing the entire windshield, so I want to give it a shot. How can I remove these scratches?

I’m so sorry that happened—but removing scratches from your car windshield is easier than you might think! Here’s how to do it:
  • Test the depth of the scratch. if it’s not too deep, you should be able to fix it on your own.
  • Combine equal parts baking soda and water to make a paste.
  • Apply the paste to the scratch using a rag and rubbing in a circular motion.
  • Wipe off excess paste and repeat.
A few applications should do the trick! This way, you don’t have to worry about replacing the windshield or filing a car insurance claim.
If you do want to make sure you’re up-to-date on your car insurance, though, an easy way to make sure you’re getting the best deal on the coverage you need is through the Jerry app. We’ll get you customized quotes from different top-of-the-line providers so that all you need to do is pick the plan that works best for you!
Best of luck with the repairs; you’ve got this!
