5 Different Ways to Remove Scratches From Ray-Ban Sunglasses

  1. Use Toothpaste

    Several different types of daily use products can be used to fix scratches. You can apply toothpaste on the surface, gently rub it in a circular motion, and then rinse it with cold water. If the scratches are deep then repeat the procedure twice.

    A good alternative for soft toothpaste is water and baking soda. Put baking soda in a bowl, add water to make a thick paste, and then rub it on your shades in a circular motion. When you feel that the last stroke has been lost, wash it with cold water.

  2. Use Silver Or Brass Polish

    If the baking soda and the soft toothpaste methods fail, then you can use a brass polish and can apply it with a soft cloth. Rub the polish on the lens, until you feel that the scratches have disappeared. Just make sure that you do not hit the frame when cleaning the lenses as that can ruin the overall look.

  3. Use Microfiber Cloth

    Clean the scratches with a soft microfiber cloth. Rough towels and cotton cloths can add to the number of scratches. If you are applying a cleaning product, and cannot remove it with a cotton ball, then rinse the lens with cold water and wipe off the water droplets with a microfiber cloth.

  4. Use Fillers Lens

    If you feel that the scratches are not disappearing, then use filler lenses. These will help in filling out the scratches for a while. There are two different types of products that can be used on your sunglasses. One of them is Turtle Wax, which is used to polish the car, and the other is Lemon Pledge, which is a furniture polish that contains a candle wax.

    Apply these products on the lens of the sunglasses, with the help of a microfiber cloth. Rub the product gently in circular motion, and then wipe the excess off with the microfiber cloth. This procedure will help you to see clearly, and you should repeat this every other week
