A beautiful glass dining table can be the centerpiece of any dining room, but scratches can easily ruin its elegance and beauty. Such scratches can appear from a variety of sources, from accidental scrapes to mischievous children and pets. Luckily, there are several methods that can help to remove scratches from a glass dining table with relative ease. In this article, we will discuss some of the best and most effective ways to do so.

Materials you will need

Before we get started, it is important to gather the necessary materials. You will need:

  • Clean and dry microfiber cloth
  • Vaseline/petroleum jelly
  • Baking soda
  • White vinegar
  • Toothpaste (non-gel based)
  • Glass polishing compound
  • Polishing wheel for power drill (optional)

Ensure that these materials are handy before starting the scratch removal process.

Vaseline/Petroleum Jelly method

If the scratch on the glass dining table is not very deep, you can try using Vaseline or petroleum jelly to remove it. This method is most suited for shallow scratches.

  1. Take a clean and dry microfiber cloth.
  2. Dab a small amount of Vaseline/petroleum jelly on the scratch.
  3. Rub the Vaseline/petroleum jelly into the scratch for 2-3 minutes, using circular motions with the cloth.
  4. Wipe away excess Vaseline/petroleum jelly with a clean and dry microfiber cloth.

By repeating this method a few times, especially for mild scratches, it is often possible to completely remove them.

Baking soda and white vinegar method

This method is ideal for light scratches on your glass dining table.

  1. Mix 1 teaspoon of baking soda with a few drops of water to make a paste.
  2. Apply this paste with a microfiber cloth to the scratched area, in circular motions.
  3. Rinse the paste off the surface of the table with vinegar.
  4. Wipe down the table with a clean, damp microfiber cloth to ensure that all traces of the substance are gone.

If the scratch remains, try repeating the process a few more times. However, be sure to use a gentler touch on your subsequent attempts to avoid any damage.

Toothpaste Method

You can use a non-gel toothpaste to remove mild scratches from your glass dining table.

  1. Put a small dot of toothpaste on the scratched area.
  2. Use a damp microfiber cloth to rub the toothpaste in a circular motion.
  3. Rinse the area with water after rubbing it for about 2-3 minutes.
  4. Ensure to completely dry the cleaned area of the glass dining table with a dry microfiber cloth.

Professional glass polishing compound method

If all the above methods prove unsuccessful, it’s time to call in the big guns. Purchasing a glass polishing compound kit from a hardware store will aid in the removal of deeper scratches from your glass dining table.

  1. Apply a small amount of the glass polishing compound to the scratched area.
  2. Buff the area with a clean, dry microfiber cloth or, for better results, a polishing wheel attached to a power drill.
  3. Rinse the area with clean water and dry with a clean microfiber cloth.

Repeat the process until the scratches have been fully removed.

However, it's always best to take precautions to prevent scratches from occurring in the first place, like using coasters, placemats, and table runners. You can also avoid setting sharp objects or heavy items on the table. Following these precautions should help keep your glass dining table looking pristine for a long time.
